"No one knows Victorian London as Lee Jackson does - historical fiction doesn't come more authentic than this." -- Andrew Taylor

Jacob Jones is a respectable clerk at the Crystal Palace Company, with a pretty young bride and a delightful new home in Islington. Yet, when his wife is found murdered, everything points to his guilt, even a handwritten confession.

The police discover Jacob Jones's diary, which reveals a litany of secrets. They learn of a husband trying to bury his sordid past; a wife afflicted by a deep personal tragedy; an unlikely love affair that leads to a fatal conclusion.

Is Jones' diary a confession? An attempt to exonerate himself? A study in madness?

Read the police investigation - read the diary itself - and uncover the truth.
