From publisher blurb:
And so it was, in the year one hundred and seven of the Great Peace, the good people of the Sinkiang territories long lamenting the ravages of the dread migoi, the Munificent Heavenly King Hong Taiehn, fourth Son of the Father, sent forth one of his Eyes, and with him one of his Hands from the Dream-City of Nanjing, and they went west, to bring the Justice of the Lord to those peoples, and the wrath of the Almighty to any foul creature tormenting them.
For was it not said, “My hand has the power to kill in heaven and earth: behead the evil ones, spare the just and alleviate the pain of the people”?
The Judge assigned to this mission was Judge Haw, and he traveled on a sleigh from Nanjing to the wild stretches of the western territories.
