    This is the story of a man who loved two women, and one of them killed him. Some people have dreams that are so outrageous that if they were to achieve them, their place in history would be guaranteed. Francis Drake, Robert Scott, Percy Fawcett, Charles Lindbergh, Amy Johnson, Edmund Hillary and Neil Armstrong are among such individuals. But what if one man had such a dream, and when he'd achieved it, there was no proof that he had fulfilled his ambition?

    William Warwick has always wanted to be a detective and decides, much to his father’s dismay, that rather than become a barrister like his father, Sir Julian Warwick QC, and his sister Grace, he will join London’s Metropolitan Police Force. After graduating from university, William begins a career that will define his life: from his early months on the beat under the watchful eye of his first mentor, Constable Fred Yates, to his first high-stakes case as a fledgling detective in Scotland Yard’s arts and antiquities squad.

    Hätte Danny Cartwright seiner Freundin Beth den Heiratsantrag nur einen Tag früher oder später gemacht, wäre er nicht verhaftet und wegen Mordes an seinem besten Freund angeklagt worden. Vor Gericht steht die Aussage des unschuldigen Mechanikers aus dem Londoner East End gegen die Aussagen von vier Gentlemen. Schnell wird klar, dass Dannys Version der Geschichte die Geschworenen nicht überzeugt: Er wird zu 22 Jahren Haft verurteilt. Die wahren Schuldigen kommen davon. Vorerst - denn alle vier unterschätzen Dannys Entschlossenheit zur Rache: Er kämpft für eine Gerechtigkeit, die die skrupellosen Täter das Fürchten lehren wird.
