The team must use all of their brawn, brains and brilliance to track down the fiend responsible before another girl is killed.
A beloved toy maker is beaten to death for a mysterious brass box and the coins in his pocket. The Whitechapel Vigilance Committee presents a 14 year-old culprit who refuses to deny the charge, leading Reid and Drake into the savage world of merciless child gangs. At the same time, Jackson's drinking and gambling have led to the loss of the pendant that ties him to his American past.
H Division and the Independent City of London force are thrown together when the panic surrounding a sudden cholera outbreak leads them to scour both boroughs to find some underlying pattern amidst the rising tide of sickness and death. Meanwhile Emily Reid seeks patronage for her charity efforts, unaware of the resistance she will meet.
The brutal clearing of a local slum for the underground railway reveals an indecipherable murder scene and an unreliable slum girl witness.

As Reid closes in on the killer, it becomes clear that the condemned slum is home to dark secrets that someone is desperate to protect.
A string of brilliantly masterminded robberies draw the attention of Reid and his team.

As Reid closes in on the brash robbers and their ultimate target, Drake finds his loyalties put to the ultimate test.
As the dock strike of August 1889 takes hold of the city, the killing of a Jewish anarchist leads Reid and the team into the merciless chicanery of the British government's fight against distant empires and global terrorism.

Reid is adrift. His team is in pieces and Leman Street is shaken to its foundations following recent events. A kidnapping offers him cause to assemble his men and tackle the white slavery ring operating in their midst. But Reid is gripped by a growing obsession that leads back to a terrible secret from his own past.
