Patron of the Guard by Fresne

'While on patrol, they came upon Eualia, a down on her luck Heteara, who'd fallen a few ranks, and now liked to dip her sandals in red paint and mark the stones with the words, "Follow me," which at least meant she was looking for clientele who could read.' Enjoyable noirish casefic novelette, with an endearing Vimes-like OC. It's a bit uneven – I skipped all the dream sex on reread – but worth a try
