Someone's preying on Victorian London's poor.
Something’s not right at Shoreditch Workhouse and plucky reporter Penny Green is struggling to convince someone to listen. After spending time there undercover, she knows that more can be done for the deserving poor beneath its roof. But does anyone else care?
When two workhouse inmates die in a fight, the police and the coroner accept the simplest explanation. Penny undertakes her own investigation with Inspector James Blakely’s help and it’s not long before they make themselves unpopular.
A macabre turn finally makes the authorities act, but can anyone stop the force behind the crimes?
