When newbie Constable Jackson Forge turns up in London, adamant he’ll right wrongs, defeat criminals, and make his father proud, he’s quickly beaten down by a sly swindler who evades his capture and, as a result, inadvertently finds himself precariously close to losing his job. When a Blackfriars Lane cab driver disappears, Jackson gets put on the case, and with his career on the line and in hot pursuit of a new trail, he finds himself on Blackfriars Lane. 

What Jackson doesn’t know is that Blackfriars Lane is Kit Turner’s stomping ground, and he’s not welcome there. Kit understands that officers aren’t to be trusted. They’ve never helped the poor of Blackfriar’s Lane in the past, and to ensure her people survive, she’s had to take matters into her own hands – swindling, working within the grey, duping the wealthy to provide food and medical care to her crew and their families – this is how business is done in Blackfriars Lane.

Not long into his investigation, he stumbles upon the elusive and mysterious thief Kit, and to both their dismay, they need one another to solve the case. If Jackson is to remain in London as a Constable, he must overcome his fear of failure and work alongside Kit, who he discovers is actually more of a Robin Hood-Heroine than a brutal gang leader. With both their livelihoods at stake, they must learn to trust each other, and, in the process, they discover there is so much more than meets the eye.
