When their underworld contacts reveal the disappearances increase when the mysterious Noah’s Ark Circus comes to town the demonic duo must impress an enigmatic ringmaster in order to go undercover as performers-to Sebastian’s delight and Ciel’s disgust.

All are connected by someone who changed their lives, someone who raised them from the gutters of London to the heights of the big top—but at a price.
