    At the centre of the novel is a Jeddah palace, believed by the people to be a place of paradise where everything becomes possible. The palace, however, is not what it seems. Having proved himself through his early sexual exploits, the young narrator Tarek Fadel has now been appointed to the palace as its new executioner. His entry to palace society is facilitated byhis old mentor Eissa, who has been elevated to a powerful position by the side of the master of the palace who maintains a public image very different fromthe private hell that he presides over. To the outside world he is the employer of the downtrodden and the disabled, while those on the inside know the terror she is routinely capable of. In this extraordinary work we are introduced to Tarek's vicious new world through his own eyes, seeing at first hand the tasks hecarries out on behalf of his master, including celebratory rapes and other humiliations of the master's enemies. Through the eyes of its two dimensional protagonist, the book gives the reader a taste of the horrifying reality of the excessive world of the palace.
