Mard Audran has risen from hustling on the streets of the decadent Budayeen ghetto to being the right-hand man of one of the Maghreb's most feared men. As an enforcer for the powerful Friedlander Bey, Mard is just beginning to enjoy his newfound wealth and privilege, when he and Bey are betrayed by a rival and accused of murder.
Sentenced to exile and abandoned to die in the vast Arabian desert, Mard and Bey must somehow survive the searing sands and make their way back to the now-hostile Budayeen - and, then, take their vengeance.
By turns thrilling and philosophical, The Exile Kiss is the culmination of one of the great works of modern SF.

The series concludes. Just buy it already!
I have read and listened to the series several times over the years. I take away some new element each and every time.
Maybe some of Wiliam Gibsons early work. They both have the flawed main characters, drug abuse and the desperation of living on the street.
He helps you put a face (mentally) to some of the characters.
It makes you sad a bit to see the Marid fall prey to his inner demons at times when it could easily cost him his life.
Just an awsome book and series.
Great insights into the middle eastern mind
