William Garrow is now a celebrated Old Bailey barrister and, encouraged by Southouse, he defends the case of the infamous Monster, a man who carries out a series of stabbings on young ladies across London. As a result, Garrow's popularity diminishes with the public and the press. However, Renwick Williams, the accused, is described by Garrow as a 'lecherous libertine' and his defence is not easy. Garrow's friendship with Lady Sarah grows closer, a fact which does not go unnoticed by her husband, Sir Arthur.
