Leon wants to rescue a baby abandoned in a dumpster in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His brother, Booth, is killed before Leon has a chance to get the baby. Did Leon kill his brother in order to save the baby? Is there a baby? Cinnamon and Burro unravel a closely woven secret, beguile a neurotic police officer, and assist a man with schizophrenia badly in need of treatment. All the while, Burro uses his visions to search for the baby, the killer, and the long last Momma, who appears and then disappears from view.

All the stories include individuals with disabilities, including Burro, who partners with Cinnamon to solve crimes.
