London, 1905. Sergeant Craig Harper is homeless. Rootless. Aimless. He isn’t looking for much. The next hot meal. The next mug of coffee. A place to lay his head. He’s not looking for friendship. Or trouble.
Until trouble finds him.
When a random act of kindness thrusts him into a brutal world of espionage and murder, he’s pulled into a secret war waged in the shadows. As Sergeant Harper becomes inextricably entwined in the lives of others, can he learn to trust again? Can he finally belong somewhere, after a lifetime running from ghosts?
Or will he cause more harm than good?
