On the way to breakfast at the Pie Car, Rex sees the newspaper stories about the death of Berndt Bork.  Later at the diner, his meal is interrupted by Fugitive-of-the-Hour, Boots Carlozo.  Their angry confrontation cools a little as they try and sort out the pieces of the deadly previous day, and Boots explains her connections with the murdered daredevils and her husband.

After the accident that killed Flying Fleming, Rex sneaks back to Fleming’s shack to look for clues.  He finds something that shows Carlozo knew the other dead daredevils better than he has let on.  Boots Carlozo is nowhere to be found on the busy streets.  Before giving up for the night, Rex sets up a meeting with Carlozo the next morning.

Getting roughed up by the police -- especially the midget Pinky Piscopink -- starts a new fire in Rex to solve his case and bring in Boots Carlozo.  He visits the last known paramour of Boots, Flying Fleming, who is none too happy to see Rex.  Fleming prepares his act for the evening, a high-dive into a shallow basin of water.  In front of Rex and his assembled audience, Fleming's platform breaks, and the daredevil is sent to his death.  Was it an accident, or murder?

Chapter 06, “Up the Ante”

Recovering from the clown blow-out at the Banana Peel, Rex is surprised by the appearance of his client, Reynaldo Carlozo.  Rex is still none too happy about being tossed bodily out of the aerialists’ bar and his client’s lack of help.  He tries to quit the case, but Carlozo shoves $100 into his hand and insists he remain on the job.

Chapter 05, “Jokers Wild”

After being tossed from Jimmy’s Hi-Wire, Rex runs into his old pal and partner in mayhem, Bingo.  Still in need of an alibi for his whereabouts, Rex decides to follow Bingo and hoist a few at the clown bar in town, the Banana Peel.  There he meets a menacing figure from his past, who insists that Rex owes him money.  This confrontation is all it takes to spark the clowns into a fight, a glorious, cackling, prop-strewn catastrophe that as usual destroys the interior of the bar.

After the murder of Berndt Bork, Rex needs to find his client and establish an alibi.  To find Carlozo, Rex heads for Jimmy’s Hi-Wire, the bar that caters to aerialists, wire walkers and trapeze artists.  There he meets unctuous Jimmy Plummett, the owner.  As he’s about to be tossed out, Rex tells the crowd that a flyer has been murdered.  Instead of waiting to learn the details, the superstitious group throws him out even faster.

Rex gets more dirt on Boots Carlozo from Lotta.  On his way to follow Boots' trail, he runs into Missouri Redd, one of the gang of vicious bastard roustabouts, the Redd Brothers.  After tangling with Missouri, Rex's newly cleaned duds have some embarrassing stains.  (Tip:  Always be careful when walking by the windows of the Monkey Hostel.)  Berndt Bork, the Human Howitzer, answers questions about his brief time with Boots, and as Rex watches, meets a grisly end while practicing his human cannonball routine.
