Their mission: busting powerful people, whose connections and money keep them above the law. If their operation is exposed, Aliceâs career will be shot and Horace will be thrown back in prison.
For complete secrecy, the circus becomes their headquarters, and its professionals, Horaceâs friends and family, prove to be fearless and creative alliesâŠ
