Fourteen-year-old San steals the purse off a stranger in black. He finds out too late that the stranger is a Truthteller, a herald of the God of Law.
Now San must face the consequences of his actions. He can submit to the punishments of his home, or venture into the unknown, wider world in service to the Truthteller Kittik Keed, a man with a mysterious past that could threaten San's safety.
