Official Synopsis

Investigations into the brutal slaying of a Telegraph Boy lift the lid on a vice racket run from the offices of the GPO.

The telegraph ledger leads Reid to the heart of the one of the city’s most august financial institutions, Barings Bank.

It is a trail that will reveal blackmail, looming economic disaster, financial corruption – the great passions shaped in men by both love and gold, and passions that are starkly shaped in Captain Jackson’s life as he seeks ever more perilous means of ridding himself and Long Susan of the suffocating debt they owe the moneylender, Silas Duggan.
