Fauna Hodel, a naïve girl growing up in mid-sixties Reno, Nevada embarks on a quest to discover who she really is. In Los Angeles, a soldier recently-returned from the Korean war—and now a hack reporter—covers a gruesome murder.
Fauna attempts to track down her family, including her mysterious grandfather, George Hodel. Jay continues his pursuit of the Bloody Romeo, but he can't let go of the story that ruined his career—a story that involved George.
Fauna meets up with Corinna but suspects the woman of lies and hiding the identity of her real mother. Jay gets a harsh visit from the LAPD but this leaves him wondering how close he's getting to the truth.
As Jay edges closer to the truth, he begins to realise the MO for the case he's looking at has more than a passing resemblance to the Black Dahlia murder. Fauna receives a mysterious invitation to a 'Happening' and, hoping for further information about her mother, heads to it.
