Summary
In this extraordinary story, which will bend the mind as well as the senses, Inspector Borluof the Extreme Crime Squad investigates the murder of a student whose body is found on the rundown streets of Besźel. Cases like this are run of the mill for Borlu until he discovers evidence that the victim had been visiting Besźel's prosperous neighboring city, Ul Qoma. This shouldn't be possible as citizens of each city are forbidden from seeing or interacting with each other
