Our PI finds himself in the bowels of the earth swapping stories with a many-tongued monster. He's landed up there after his newly appointed angel assistant (with a body to-die-for) was zombifically assaulted by one of the City Cops planning to break into the vault containing the Still Point of the Turning World. The lease on his business is about to expire. If the Fool breaks into the vault, so is the one on the whole of the world. Can Gumshoe save them both? And just what is the connection between the behemoth and the Still Point of the Turning World?
