August 1888 and as a killer strikes, the people of Whitechapel seek the truth within the walls of a seedy Dorset Street music hall.

Dr. Tumblety's only interest is in young boys... or is it? Jewish mobster Aaron Ezekiel has ambitions to become London's leading crime lord. Returned transportee and music hall sensation Growler Griffin is back to seek revenge on the man who ruined his life. Little Bess is looking for a way out and is hoping to find it, one way or another through Inspector Trimp, the man with all the answers.

Bawdy, bloody and brutal the Palace of Wonder is home to eunuchs, psychics, thieves and dollymops and where murder waits within it's wings.

So enter the seedy world of the Victorian Music Hall but watch your back!
