Official Synopsis

Churches and synagogues are being burnt and desecrated in Whitechapel and Reid suspects the same hand is behind the various attacks – someone who would exploit the fragile peace that exists between East London’s diverse communities and see the streets escalate into sectarian mayhem.

Seeking once more the help of the Jewish mathematician, Isaac Bloom, Reid’s inquiries take him beyond orthodox religious beliefs, however – into the occult, millennial beliefs of those who see the world moving into a great and transforming cataclysm.

Meanwhile, the all-too-brief domestic happiness that Sergeant Drake has enjoyed is to be disrupted by the arrival of a friend from his wife Bella’s past, the mysterious and charismatic scholar Gabriel Cain.
