Part: 21

Summary (From the publisher):

In 1892, Queen Victoria clings to her widow's weeds and seclusion while her bored heir, the Prince of Wales, outrages everyone with his mistresses and profligate spending. The grisly murders of Whitechapel prostitutes by a killer known as Jack the Ripper remain a terrifying enigma.

And in a packed Old Bailey courtroom, Pitt's testimony causes distinguished soldier John Adinett to be sentenced to hang for the inexplicable murder of his friend, Martin Fetters.

Instead of being praised for his superb deduction, Pitt is removed from his command of the Bow Street Station by pressure from Adinett's powerful friends of the Inner Circle and transferred to the clandestine Special Branch in the dangerous East End. There he is to investigate alleged anarchist plots, working undercover and far from his family, in Whitechapel, one of the worst slums. Among his few allies are clever Charlotte and intrepid Gracie, the servant who can travel unremarked in Whitechapel.

But none of them anticipate the horrors to be revealed.
