Strange behavior among the prisoners is only the beginning.
Bunierti Kittran is a rich young woman who enlisted to serve her government and honorably complete her duty to society.
She looks down on those who use the influence of their wealthy families to bypass the discomforts of being an Upholder, although she is not happy that she must tolerate people from the lower economic classes who often have little more to look forward to than a hot meal and a safe place to sleep.

However, she does not expect to be wrapped up in the mystery when the enigmatic prisoners of Wolf Block take a special interest in her.
