Follow this down-but-not-out resident of Boston's richly textured historic center as he finds himself an unlikely investigator pursuing runaways, thieves, pimps, rapists, drug dealers and murderers as he puts his life at risk investigating crime as only one of the nameless, invisible homeless can, working to fix those things broken in others. What landed this man out here? What led him to abandon a good life for a life in the back streets of Back Bay? Each case file reveals a little more. Each case file hints at his worth and his character. Each case file leads him closer to something that has long eluded him, something he has abandoned hope of finding ... a little justice for himself.
