Sweetie Fairbairn. Doyenne of Chicago society, known for big-hearted philanthropy and magnificent soirees in a penthouse high atop one of the city's premier boutique hotels. 

 A clown. Not known for much beyond blue polka-dots and a big red nose. And going off another roof, in the city's factory district. A suicide. Or a victim.

And Dek Elstrom. Known to hate not knowing, hired by a big man with a fat wallet and a long limousine, to investigate the death of the clown, and to ask any question except one:

Did Sweetie Fairbairn ever exist at all?
