September 1799. Treacherous waters threaten to engulf policeman Tom Pascoe when a politician's body is found floating in the Thames.

September 1799.

William Pitt is attempting to force through anti-slavery legislation, but many have a vested interest in preventing this change and would go to dangerous lengths to stop it.

But Tom must pull himself together, or be dragged under; Pitt's life is in his hands.
