Purgatory is the lawless moon colony of billionaire Fletcher Brass: a mecca for war criminals, murderers, sex fiends, and adventurous tourists. You can't find better drugs, cheaper plastic surgery, or a more ominous travel advisory anywhere. But trouble is brewing in Brass' black-market heaven. When an exiled cop arrives in this wild frontier, he immediately finds himself investigating a string of ruthless assassinations in which Brass himself and his equally ambitious daughter are the chief suspects.

It is now 20 years since Scheherazade seduced the tyrannical King Shahriyar, since she spun her stories for 1001 nights, saving not only her own life but the lives of every other woman of her generation.

The year is AD 806, the year snow fell on Baghdad, and the year Scheherazade and Shahriyar make their first visit to the city.
