A newish Police Force, a rapidly expanding Town.Meet Rookie Constable Samson Shepherd and his experienced mentor Constable John Beddows.Watch as they take on a community gripped by crime, intolerant to law and law enforcement, rich preying on poor and vulnerable, and getting richer by the minute.Compare and contrast the arrogance, decadence and depravity of the emerging Industrialists, to the grim, and often short, lives of the poor.The survival of the fittest, or the survival of the richest?Watch crime fighting and criminal investigation grow and flourish, as Shepherd, Beddows and their colleagues in Leicester Borough Police, meet the bad guys head on.In this, the first of a series featuring Samson Shepherd, John Beddows and The Borough Boys, the body of a young boy is found floating in the River Soar in the heart of Leicester.Very quickly, it becomes apparent that this body should not have been found.Thus begins a series of events, which will expose a network of local people, linked together through murder, corruption, child exploitation and depravity.Many wars were fought on home soil, and this is but one!Good versus Bad, but who will have the nonce to take control?
