    • A complex and engaging murder mystery set in a fully realized world that is both exotic and thoroughly plausible.
    • Humayoun Ibrahim’s vividly colored artwork gorgeously depicts this strange tale. It also brilliantly interprets the decorous manners of the planet Sirene, including the intricate masks worn at all times. Speech bubbles are outlined in bold, geometric shapes when individuals are singing rather than speaking to one another.
    • An informative essay introduces the work of Jack Vance, a science-fiction pioneer. Ibrahim’s adaptation of Vance’s story is flawless.
    • Questions about the murderer’s identity will keep readers guessing until the very end.
