October, 1938: Johnny Steadman, investigative journalist, is called to the scene of a gruesome murder - a man has been tied to his bed, mutilated and left to bleed to death. This is the second time the killer has struck, and it won't be the last. Together with D.C. Matt Turner, Johnny tries desperately to find a link between the victims. When the next Lord Mayor of London is subjected to a vicious anti-Semitic attack, Johnny begins to wonder if the two cases are connected. Against a backdrop of escalating violence in Nazi Germany, he uncovers a shocking conspiracy that could bring the United Kingdom to its knees. But will Johnny live to tell the tale?
