Tito is in his early twenties. Born in Cuba, he speaks
fluent Russian, lives in one room in a NoLita warehouse,
and does delicate jobs involving information transfer.
Hollis Henry is an investigative journalist, on assignment
from a magazine called Node. Node doesn't exist yet, which
is fine; she's used to that. But it seems to be actively
blocking the kind of buzz that magazines normally cultivate
before they start up. Really actively blocking it. It's
odd, even a little scary, if Hollis lets herself think
about it much. Which she doesn't; she can't afford to.
Milgrim is a junkie. A high-end junkie, hooked on
prescription antianxiety drugs. Milgrim figures he wouldn't
survive twenty-four hours if Brown, the mystery man who
saved him from a misunderstanding with his dealer, ever
stopped supplying those little bubble packs. What exactly
Brown is up to Milgrim can't say, but it seems to be
military in nature. At least, Milgrim's very nuanced
Russian would seem to be a big part of it, as would
breaking into locked rooms.
Bobby Chombo is a "producer," and an enigma. In his day
job, Bobby is a troubleshooter for manufacturers of
military navigation equipment. He refuses to sleep in the
same place twice. He meets no one. Hollis Henry has been
told to find him.
