    Bridget O'Donnell's meticulously researched book takes us back to London in the sweltering summer of 1885 and Chelsea police station, where Jeremiah Minahan is about to enter a labyrinth of slums and dark secrets in search of 13-year-old Eliza Armstrong. Having ruined his prospects of promotion once already, ex-inspector Minaham set out to expose a Victorian sex-trade; he lost everything, but won the amendment of consent law that protects children to this day.
