The action starts right from the get-go. Lord and Lady Danvers return home from a lovely evening out, just the two of them, to their house being on fire and their infant son trapped inside. Lord Danvers is able to rescue his son and nursemaid, but in the process is injured. As a result of the fire, their home is inhabitable. Lord Danvers' brother, Freddie, has recently written asking for his help in solving a mystery at the shelter his church operates. Freddie is a vicar and believes in living where he serves, so he lives in this tenement-filled area where garbage and other refuse is thrown out on the street. It is absolutely filthy and dangerous. Lady Danvers loves a good mystery and persuades her husband to help Freddie.
As Lord and Lady Danvers volunteer to help at Magdalen House, serving food, washing dishes, and whatever else may need to be done, they see the desperate need for help among these women and children. They encounter stories and people that make your skin crawl! In the midst of their charitable work, a very public trial is being held of a man who is accused of poisoning his wife. Lady Danvers attends some of the trial where the question is to decide if an insane person is responsible for his actions in the commission of a crime and should he/she be punished for the crime.

I found the book invigorating which made me want to know who the murderer was and why they were doing it. I personally was surprised by who and why they committed the crime. Believe me it was the last person you would suspect. You will ask yourself, what do a fire , deaths of a maid and poor women at Magdalen House, and a soup kitchen have in common. You will find out what at the very end of this must read book. I know it had me wanting to read more.
