Some Secrets Are Best Left Buried

November 1886: A burial chamber is unearthed deep beneath London. A tyrant king, dead for a thousand years, prepares to rule again.

Reformed pickpocket Eddie and his friends are more worried about the deadly Tick-Tock Killer who stalks his victims through London's foggy streets. But could the two be linked? With George missing and Liz behaving strangely, only Sir William can help Eddie save the Empire from the evil of an ancient curse.
