The book is about this obliterated assassin who is picked to go on a mission to kill the King. He (the assassin) has a rather hard time with this task simply because he is never told straight out by anyone to kill the King. He has this dream or you think it's a dream where this giant snake tells him to kill the King but, Abdullah-Harazins the main antagonist never tells Anazasi the assassin to kill the King. We get a sense of maddening as Anazasi falls under the spell of drug use and the reader takes us inside a world I don't understand.
This book also seems a little offensive from the perspective of the perfect male fantasy is a paradise cove of a waterpark where the man gets to have an orgy with dozens of young naked women from every ethnic background in the world and sip cognac next to a waterfall afterwards.
There were a few good things about it. There was one or two beautiful sentences and I particularly like a lot of the alliteration with the snake, "ASsSsSsASsSsSinS...KkKill the KkKing."
The book follows the hazy and stoned Anazasi on route to deliver his dead father's remains. Anazasi is in a mental and physical haze after everyone in his family has mysteriously died in various "accidents" and clearly does not want to be alive. As Anazasi gets wrapped up in his travels, he begins to suspect there is an ulterior motive for his assignment. Is he going crazy? Or is he really supposed to kill the king of his country?
