Leon wants to rescue a baby abandoned in a dumpster in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His brother, Booth, is killed before Leon has a chance to get the baby. Did Leon kill his brother in order to save the baby? Is there a baby? In this noir crime story, Cinnamon and Burro unravel a closely woven secret, beguile a neurotic police officer, and assist a man with schizophrenia badly in need of treatment. Strange characters with odd habits abound. All the while, Burro uses his visions to search for the baby, the killer, and the long lost Momma, who appears and then disappears from view.
