When we last saw Farah, she had found some validation from the rescue of Lydia Spring and generously funded what seemed like the new centerpiece of her life, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (the one agency that might accept her). But all that went up in smoke when Todd got struck down by his first bout of pararibulitis and Dirk vanished. Three months later, Farah is on the run with Todd, both wanted criminals, and yet she is still trying to prove herself to be the person her family expected her to be. She launches herself into the new investigation, working side by side with Dirk, Todd and the local law enforcement in Bergsberg lead by Sheriff Hobbs.
