When two post-mortem photographers, turned paranormal investigators, Frederick Ladbroke and Emma Wickes, take on a  new their next assignment, they become embroiled in a strange investigation with a mysterious medium, Lucian Abberton.  

Can they stop William’s malevolent spirit from escaping Bishopsgate Jail… or will the gates of hell be opened and unimaginable  terror be unleashed on Victorian London?
