It is April of 1901, and one of Boston?s most powerful men has gone missing. Desperate to find her brother, Harry, the beautiful Abigail Pierson hires upstart detective Ralph Maguire?against her powerful father?s wishes. Already smitten with Abigail, Ralph vows to help, no matter what the cost. As Ralph watches Abigail step into her carriage and ride away, he pushes his Colt M1892 into the waistband of his pants and sets his hat on his head. The case has officially begun.

With Harry seemingly destined to be the next mayor of Boston, Ralph immediately delves into an investigation that takes him straight to the police department, where his ideas for finding Harry are promptly dismissed. But when the body of another missing man suddenly surfaces in the river and five more men disappear without a trace, Ralph soon realizes that a serial killer has taken up residence in Boston. As the young detective recruits a sidekick to help him find a brilliant mastermind before he murders again, they embark on a dangerous investigation that takes them from Boston to Liverpool.

In this fast-paced murder mystery, a simple missing person investigation soon turns into a lethal race against time to stop a killer and save a beautiful woman from a dreadful demise.
