1 Work in The 39 Steps - Barlow
Ruby Rose is at a theatre in Patch, attending a demonstration of the remarkable powers of “Miss Memory”, a girl with a photographic memory, when two suspicious looking characters start approaching her and a mysterious woman, who had sat down next to Ruby during the middle of the performance. A shot is fired, the theatre goes black, and in the ensuing panic, Ruby finds herself being dragged through the streets of downtown Patch by a frightened Blake Belladonna, who talks Ruby into taking her back to Ruby's home.
There, Blake tells Ruby that she is a spy, pursued by assassins out to kill her. She claims to have uncovered a plot to steal vital Atlas military secrets, implemented by a woman who is the head of an espionage organization called “The 39 Iceflowers.”
What happens next only time will tell!
