The thrilling sequel to Dead Image is again based on fact -- a dramatic murder case is set against an 1878 historic tragedy. When the bodies of a number of babies are found scattered around Islington, the volatile Detective Sergeant Best is sent undercover to lodge next door to a suspected baby farm. He shadows an alleged "child dropper" onto a Thames pleasure steamer and finds himself caught up in Britain's worst civilian tragedy -- the 1878 sinking of the Princess Alice -- a ghastly experience which will haunt Best forever. His determination to avenge the death of a young pregnant girl he had befriended and save the life of another becomes a crusade. Meanwhile, his beloved Helen returns from Paris with the promise of a decision as to their future.
