In an unnamed city always slick with rain Charles Unwin toils as a clerk at a huge imperious detective agency All he knows about solving mysteries comes from the reports he s filed for the illustrious detective Travis Sivart When Sivart goes missing and his supervisor turns up murdered Unwin is suddenly promoted to detective a rank for which he lacks both the skills and the stomach His only guidance comes from his new assistant who would be perfect if she weren t so sleepy and from the pithy yet profound i Manual of Detection i think i The Art of War i as told to Damon Runyon .

Unwin mounts his search for Sivart but is soon framed for murder pursued by goons and gunmen and confounded by the infamous femme fatale Cleo Greenwood Meanwhile strange and troubling questions proliferate why does the mummy at the Municipal Museum have modern day dental work Where have all the city s alarm clocks gone Why is Unwin s copy of the manual missing Chapter .
