Summary
New York City, 1845. Timothy Wilde tends bar near the Exchange, saving every dollar in hopes of winning the girl of his dreams. Then his dreams are incinerated in a downtown fire, leaving Timothy disfigured, unemployed, and homeless, until his older brother obtains him a job in the newly minted NYPD. One night after his rounds in the notoriously down-and-out Sixth Ward, Timothy runs into a little slip of a girl covered head to toe in blood, and into a bittle for justice that nearly costs him everything

Summary
August 1845 in New York; enter the dark, unforgiving city underworld of the legendary Five Points. After a fire decimates a swathe of lower Manhattan, and following years of passionate political dispute, New York City at long last forms an official Police Department. That same summer, the great potato famine hits Ireland. These events will change the city of New York for ever. Timothy Wilde hadn't wanted to be a copper star. On the night of August 21st, on his way home from the Tombs defeated and disgusted, he is plotting his resignation, when a young girl who has escaped from a nearby brothel, crashes into him; she wears only a nightdress and is covered from head to toe in blood. Searching out the truth in the child's wild stories, Timothy soon finds himself on the trail of a brutal killer, seemingly hell bent on fanning the flames of anti-Irish immigrant sentiment and threatening chaos in a city already in the midst of social upheaval. But his fight for justice could cost him the woman he loves, his brother and ultimately his life.
