Their investigations lead the pair to the darkest alleys of the East End: Every twist leads Sidney Grice to think the husband guilty, but March is convinced that he is innocent. And as the case threatens to foment civil unrest, Sidney Grice finds his reputation is not the only thing in mortal danger . . .

The place she thought she'd left behind for good. Time ticks slowly in Sackwater, and crime is of a decidedly lighter shade.
