PI Evan Blade learned to his work from shadows on the carnival circuits.
Petra Isolta McIntyre, before she was six was kidnaped, sold on a baby market, had four names, and witnessed three murders.
Evan inherits guardianship of Petra, who, when he first learns she is a girl, describes her as “so sexless, she wouldn’t attract a blind drunk in a dark bar.” He juggles confetti fragments of information to identify the a killer.
