York, 1798: An artist is found murdered in his home, stabbed with the tools of his trade: a pair of scissors.

Meanwhile, Fletcher Rigge, a clever but impoverished gentleman, languishes in debtors' prison - until a letter arrives containing a bizarre proposition from the son of the murdered man. Rigge is to be released for one month; but in that time, he must find the killer. If he fails, he will be incarcerated again, possibly for life. And so, equipped only with copies of the distinctive silhouettes, Rigge begins his search across the snow-covered city, and enters a world of shadows...
