Thomas and Charlotte Pitt must discover the truth of a
young gentleman’s sordid murder—or an innocent man will hang
The naked body of an aristocratic youth turns up in the
sewers beneath Bluegate Fields, one of London’s most
notorious slums. But Arthur Waybourne had been drowned in
his bath, not in the Thames. More shocking still was that
the boy had been sexually violated and infected with
syphilis before he was murdered. Despite Inspector Thomas
Pitt’s efforts to fully investigate the crime, the family
closes ranks, stonewalling Pitt, leaving him to wonder what
they are hiding. All evidence points to Arthur’s tutor,
Jerome, as the murderer. The courts agree and Jerome is
sentenced to hang. Pitt and his wife, Charlotte, don’t
believe the answer is so simple. But if not Jerome, then who
molested and infected the boy?
To learn the truth, Charlotte uses her familiarity with the
upper classes to draw aside the curtain of lies, while Pitt
defies his superior and the boy’s family to follow a trail
that leads him into the foulest streets of London through a
web of deceit involving male prostitution and pedophilia. In
a race against time, Thomas and Charlotte must find the real
killer to save Jerome from the hangman’s noose.
