(From the publisher):
The rich hate him. Thieves fear him. Women love him.
Matthew Hawkwood just wants to do his job - keeping the peace on the teeming, crime-ridden streets of Regency London. But there is more to this tall, dark and dangerous Bow Street Runner than meets the gin-sodden eye.
He is a man with a past, a past that worries some in high places. But the Chief Magistrate thinks he is just right for a crucial mission. Because London is not only home to arrogant aristocrats and pickpockets - but French spies, rogue inventors and other enemies of England...
