August 1845 in New York; enter the dark, unforgiving city underworld of the legendary Five Points...

After a fire decimates a swathe of lower Manhattan,
and following years of passionate political dispute, New York City at
long last forms an official Police Department. That same summer, the

New York for ever.

Timothy Wilde hadn't wanted to be a copper star. On

anti-Irish immigrant sentiment and threatening chaos in a city already
in the midst of social upheaval. But his fight for justice could cost
him the woman he loves, his brother and ultimately his life...
