When an opulent palace is built on the Jeddah waterfront near his poverty-stricken neighborhood, ambitious Tariq sees a way out of his life of petty crime. He stares longingly at the huge gates, dreaming of the luxuries beyond.But dream quickly turns into nightmare. The Palace is ruled by an enigmatic Master whose influence in the city is as wide as it is wicked. When Tariq succeeds in being appointed to serve the Master it becomes clear that he has been chosen for a single, terrible task.Thirty years later, Tariq feels trapped. In between punishing the Masterâs enemies through unspeakable acts, falling for Maram, the Masterâs beautiful mistress, and resisting his brotherâs pleas to return home, he realises that he has become no more than a slave--and that there is only one way out.
