It's December, 1985. James Cote has been able to reconcile with his family over the summer, and things are just about back to normal. But Lettice's family is about as far from normal as she is.
While preparing for Christmas in California, Lettice's mother receives a strange phone call from a little girl asking if they can help her find her daddy--Lettice's father, who supposedly died fifteen years ago.
In their strangest case yet, James and Lettice Cote travel to Vancouver to take on a five year old girl's case for his lowest fee ever--a dollar a day. In quarters.
