But conscience seems to be in short supply at By-Smart... with the exception of Billy Bysen, the earnest teenage grandson of the chain's gruff, tightfisted founder. And when Billy disappears—along with a mysterious document much desired by By-Smart's management team—V. I. is hurled onto a twisted, body-strewn path that runs through Chicago's dirtiest places and reveals some of its dirtiest secrets....
