Abstract:

It is 1887, the year of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, and London is in turmoil, particularly at the dead centre, Trafalgar Square. Here, the angry unemployed gather daily to protest and nightly to sleep. The police are tired and bitter about accusations of brutality from the protestors. Then a prominent member of one of the socialist organizations leading the protests is found dead at the foot of Nelson's Column and Detective Inspector Ernest Best catches a fleeting glimpse of Stark, a man he knows was guilty of a dreadful crime in Whitechapel. Tension builds. Something terrible is about to happen.
