In 1863, Superintendent Henry Jarrettâ€â€Âformerly of the Hong Kong police and now Chief of the Detective Department at Glasgow Centralâ€â€Âis comfortably ensconced in Elsie Maitland's superior guest house for single gentlemen. Unfortunately, this tranquility is short-lived and problems start to come thick and fast. First, a major bank robbery calls for the best efforts of Jarrett, Inspector Charlie Grant, and Sergeant Tommy Quinn. Undermanned and under-funded, the department soon has to deal with a series of gory murders, an attacker who lies in wait for maids on their night off, and a cold-blooded poisoner. Stretched to breaking point, they can well do without the activities of a confidence trickster and his loyal assistant.
