In Portland, City of Roses, it takes more than raindrops to make Detective Max Rose bloom. A pipe, a bourbon, and all the brain-power that goes into solving a murder makes him blossom. And what about emerald-eyed Lily Roberts, the victim's widow? A tonic. Hopefully not one made with hemlock. To find Jack's killer, Max journeys into Portland's Circus Underground.
