Whicher seems to be close to solving the case and returns to the asylum where he is accused of being mentally unstable and after a struggle is strapped into a straitjacket and locked up at the instigation of Dr Casement Alistair Petrie and Inspector Lock. Stephen Gann's grandfather is also an inmate in the asylum.
He finally reveals the identity of Susan Spencer's father's murderer. It was his other son, Gann's wealthy uncle, Thomas, who was also the father of Mary Drew. Whicher makes his escape and confronts those responsible for her murder in a chilling finale. Sir Edward wants Whicher to look into threats made against his son Charles, who has recently returned to London from India with his wife and children.
Charles is being pursued by Asim Jabour, an Indian seeking money or revenge, now passing as a lascar Indian sailor in the Docklands. Sir Edward wants the affair dealt with secretly, not by the police. But then Asim is found murdered, and Whicher demands that the Shores tell him the whole story and identify the dead man to the police. Whicher's investigation uncovers betrayal and interracial secrets in both Docklands and upper-class London. The historic Chatham Dockyard in Kent was used as a film location for some of the London streets and docks.
Whicher follows a married woman through London to a secret assignation. He is bearing witness to an open and shut case that will lead to divorce for Sir Henry Coverley from his wife Lady Jane. But, when the co-respondent is killed, a simple case soon spirals out of control, embracing love, desire, gambling, corruption, theft and an illicit passion that leads to murder.
