Jackson is in custody, facing the noose for a murder he never committed.

Drake is despondent, his personal life a shambles. And Reid is adrift – his team in pieces, Leman Street in mourning, and his heart torn between two women. The suspected kidnapping of Rose, however, offers cause for Reid to try and assemble his men and crack the white slavery ring they find operating in their midst. But as the clues accumulate, Reid is gripped by a growing obsession that the man he hunts may have personal knowledge of the terrible secret Reid nurtures regarding his own past.
