Something sinister is going on in the stinking slums of London. Sideshow acts are going missing . . . men wearing animal masks and eye goggles are hunting them down and killing them for sport. But who are this fiendish Hunters’ Club? And what is the reason for their cruel game?

Sheba the wolfgirl and Pyewacket the witch’s imp know all about life in a sideshow. But now they are the Carnival, private investigators working to help unusual people like them. Teaming up with new recruits half-cat Inji, her extraordinary brother, the armadillo-like Sil and Glyph the psychic, it’s a race against time . . . to track down the mask-wearing villains, before anyone else comes to harm!
