Summary (From the publisher):

Winter, 1906. It's Jim Stringer's first day as an official railway detective, working from York Station for the mighty North Eastern Railway Company. But he's not a happy man.

As the rain falls incessantly on the city's ancient, neglected streets, the local paper carries a story highly unusual by York standards: two brothers have been shot to death.

Meanwhile, on the station platforms, Jim Stringer meets the Lost Luggage Porter, humblest among the railway's employees. He tells Jim a tale which leads him to the roughest part of town, a place where the police constables always walk in twos. Jim is off on the trail of pickpockets, 'station loungers' and other small fry of the York Underworld.

Then, in a tiny, one-room pub with a badly smoking fire, Jim enters the orbit of a dangerous, disturbed villain who is playing for much higher stakes.
