    Summary

    One year turns Glokta from a broken wreck who his doctors say will never leave the bed in his mother’s house again, to a slightly-less-broken wreck in charge of a penal colony in Angland. What happened during that year?

    His mother wants him married, and since most of the good families have some ‘unmarriageable’ daughters and nieces cluttering up their mansions, her ambition is not as overly optimistic as it might at first seem.

    Glokta has learned to want nothing – nothing he could want is remotely within his grasp, not even death.

    But when one of the endless procession of well-bred eccentrics and rejects his mother parades past him turns out to need a friend almost as much as he does, he finds himself with an incentive to – with her help – hobble the slow and painful path from his bed to one of the places he most fears.
