The shady inner workings of the world of high fashion prove to be perplexing even to a mind as sharp as Max's when he's called to assist with an investigation into the murder of a young seamstress. Frustrated at every turn, Max and Oskar require assistance of their own to uncover the seedy underbelly behind the glamorous facade.

Poring over the minutiae of a fresh rash of grisly deaths, the three-parter leads our clue-sniffing odd couple from a luxury fashion house to ornate opium dens and Max's own practice. They follow the gruesome death of a former soldier tormented by his past in a case that's not as open and shut as it initially appears to be.
