Love, lust, sorrow, joy, life and death! All human emotions are here inside Dorset Street’s Palace of Wonder. Everybody is searching for the truth, but will they stay alive long enough to find it?
August 1888 and as a killer strikes, the people of Whitechapel seek the truth within the walls of a seedy Dorset Street music hall. Former kosher butcher's boy turned music hall impresario, Stan Garrideb has a dark secret, one that he hopes to take to the grave before psychic phenomenon Job reveals all. Dr. Tumblety's only interest is in young boys... or is it? Jewish mobster Aaron Ezekiel has ambitions to become London's leading crime lord. Returned transportee and music hall sensation Growler Griffin is back to seek revenge on the man who ruined his life. Little Bess is looking for a way out and is hoping to find it, one way or another through Inspector Trimp, the man with all the answers. Bawdy, bloody and brutal the Palace of Wonder is home to eunuchs, psychics, thieves and dollymops and where murder waits within it's wings. So enter the seedy world of the Victorian Music Hall but watch your back!
