The Sirenese cover their faces with exquisitely crafted masks that indicate their social status. Edwer Thissell, the new consul from Earth, wears a mask of very low status: the Moon Moth. Shortly after his arrival on the planet Sirene, he finds himself embroiled in an unsolved murder case. Since everyone must always wear a mask, you can never be sure with whom you’re dealing.

Seekers of wisdom and beauty include lovely lost women, eccentric wizards and man-eating melancholy deodands. Twk-men ride dragonflies and trade information for salt. There are monsters and demons. Each being is morally ambiguous: the evil are charming, the good are dangerous.
