In 1803, whoever knows where the city will build can control it. Violence builds as a mysterious provocateur pits New York’s black and Irish gangs against each other. And when a young black girl is found stabbed to death, City Marshal Justy Flanagan and school teacher Kerry O’Toole decide separately to go after the killer. They each find their way to a shadowy community on the fringes of the growing city, where they uncover a craven political conspiracy bound up with a criminal enterprise that is stunning in its depravity. Justy and Kerry have to fight to save themselves and the city, and only then can they bring the girl’s killer to justice.
