There he meets the mysteriously reclusive Cecil Dreeme, excellent artist and creature of the evening. In Dreeme, Byng reveals a pal in contrast to any he has identified prior to. yet is Cecil the fellow he claims to be, and will their friendship live to tell the tale the hazards they'll quickly face together?
