The Circus has never reached a successful finale. Paulo Puck, the previous ringleader, met his Judgement before the final curtain fell. The company that remain need to see the circus end if they have any hope of moving on. Enter, General Pip Rickett.
With the help of an aerial artist and a necrozoologist, he has some very large shoes to fill; and the clown who owns them has disappeared into the Necropolitan night. But before any work can get done, General Pip Rickett needs to discover what it really means to be a resident of the City by the Styx.
Drum roll, please.
