As usual, Duncan's creativity is astonishing. The detailed construction of this unique society and the sophistication of the civilization is stunning. Then there is a murder investigation, a likeable hero, a complex series of plot twists, sophisticated character development and perfect little details such as climate, seating and etiquette that make such an encompassing experience.
It is maybe a tad slow, and the numbers of relatives and political figures made it impossible for me to remember all the names, but these are tiny criticisms against the general excellence.
