The Killjoys take a warrant just to pay off their debt for the damage done on Qresh.

Soon it becomes a hostage situation between the prisoner's sister and the Mayor's daughter. The trio find themselves at Sugar Point, a run-down area where scavengers steal anything of value. The ship is shot down in the scavenger territory. While D'avin and Dutch make their way towards the building where the hostage situation is, Johnny finds himself in the ship and surrounded by scavengers, and manages to use the ships resources to get rid of them. The duo get captured by organ harvesters, but manage to escape, and take the Mayor's daughter back by directing the scavengers to the warlord's domain. Back on Westerly the trio go to the Royale and while discussing D'avin's options Dutch recommends that D'avin become a Killjoy, he accepts. Dutch's old teacher, Khlyen has requested her to kill someone for him and Dutch goes off on her own to find out why Khlyen wants the person dead.
D'avin passes the interview to become a Killjoy, minus his psych eval. He starts as a Level 4, outranking Johnny. Dutch interrogates the man Khlyen wants dead, but he has no idea why he's wanted dead, so she releases him. Johnny's friend N'oa wants him to take a warrant on her missing husband so she will not go to prison. D'avin asks Pawter to sign his psych eval and she agrees if he will get her a ride on Lucy to Leith. On Leith Johnny goes undercover as a field worker and Dutch as a Hokk distributer. They hack the computer and find Vincent's ear tracker but it does not lead them to Vincent. Johnny follows a different lead and finds Vincent who is running a Jakk grow. The Hokk grower cuts his losses and calls the authorities to come defoliate the Jakk grow. Johnny captures Vincent and they just barely make it off Lieth. On Westerly Vincent is arrested for an expired Visa because they took the long way back.

The Killjoys track its surrogate mother, Constance, to a hidden abbey in the Bad Lands and, despite coming under attack by one of the Nine's house guard in disguise, extract her and deliver her to Qresh. Just as Johnny lands, against the will of Delle Seyah, Constance delivers the baby in the cargo hold. Delle Seyah is forced to acknowledge the new Qreshi citizen and she is now the baby's legal guardian. Delle Seyah tells Dutch that by forcing her hand Dutch has made her some enemies. While they talk, Dutch gives it 50/50 odds Delle Seyah was behind the attack and used her to find the heir. Delle Seyah, intrigued by Dutch's concealed refinement, tells her house guard to investigate.
