Card Sharks - George R. R. Martin

The first Card Sharks novel is a departure from some of the others, in that the lead character is a nat, and not a highly trained vigilante, at that.

Hannah Davies is looking into a crime, being an arson investigator. She uncovers a much bigger type of criminal than just an arsonist, however. Father Squid suggests to Quasiman that he help out Hannah, as much as you can suggest anything to him, anyway.
