Misaki Aki Itou is a psi--a person with mutated DNA granting him psychic abilities. He's also a contracted companion--a whore. It may t be the perfect profession, but having a roof over his head, food to eat, and t being subjected to torture is a dream come true. He is the top companion at the Hidden Gem, and it makes him eugh money to buy the prettiest, most sparkly shoes he can find. Shane McNaughton is an Irishman who survived the Third World War and works as a cop. Head of Missing Persons, he's good at finding people, but after the plague of the Third mutated his DNA, he has a hard time letting anyone see the monster inside. He's been paying for Aki's services for two years, both the psi and the sexual kind, but he wants more from the companion. Shane needs Aki's ability to see into ather person's past to track down a serial killer murdering the children of rich and powerful men, but the more they work together, the clearer it becomes that they are linked through a darker past than either of them realizes.
