A beautifully crafted tale of crime, mystery and suspense. The grimy fog rolls over London as three young adults step into their new lives. They encounter a gamut of remarkable characters, from the irritating leech Mr Skimpole to the gallant soldier Mr George, whilst at the heart of the tale lies a lengthy labyrinthine court case which embroils many in its bitter grasp. Meanwhile the insidious lawyer Mr Tulkinghorn is prying into the mysterious letters of a man who styled himself 'Nemo'and his connection to the imperious Lady Dedlock. And what part does the ward Esther have to play in all this? When Tulkinghorn turns up murdered, and Lady Dedlock disappears, Inspector Bucket realises he'll have to unearth a few dreaded secrets if he wants to solve the case.
