Originally published: London: Robert Hale, 2009.
After suffering a serious beating whilst engaged in unofficial undercover work in the murky streets and taverns of London's 19th-century slums, Constable Tom Churchyard takes himself to Cornwall. Here, in spite of his injuries, he becomes right-hand man to Amos Hawke, now a senior Cornish policeman. His knowledge of the London rogues proves invaluable as Amos seeks to foil a gang of city thieves whose plan is to plunder the mansions of the Cornish gentry. When a brutal murder is committed during their investigations, it proves far more complex than it appeared at first glance...
