Jack Romaine's addiction to speakeasies and cards has landed him in a tight spot-one which he can't use his good looks to get out of. With debts to dangerous men piling up, he becomes an unwilling recruit for a Cincinnati gangster needing an expendable tool to recover his stolen cash and railroad bonds. Unfortunately, Jack is not the only man on the trail of the stolen money-he is in competition with a sadistic killer who relishes the carnage he leaves in his wake. The trail leads south to Kaleidoscope; a 'beddy' for freaks during the months when carnival is out-of-season.

Others warm to him, particularly Luna and a pair of married dwarves, and though he initially stands out in a world literally made up of circus freaks, by the time Becker picks up his trail, Jack realizes that he has essentially found a new family at Kaleidoscope.
