Beneath the glitz and glamor of Kyusi, the country’s City of Stars, there lurks insidious violence. In four thought-provoking and thrilling stories, dauntless lady crime fighter SJ Tuason combines brain with brawn as she seeks to solve the cases of an ex-financial scammer murdered in a public park; a Queen Amidala cosplayer left dead among talahib; faceless corpses in abandoned places; a young matinee idol killed in the slums; and the long-unsolved death of her father.
But given outmoded equipment and the overpowering patriarchy, will the victims ever get justice?
