On the morning of 30th June 1860, the body of three-year-old Saville Kent is found brutally murdered and hidden down a servants’ privy in the grounds of the elegant Road Hill House, on the edge of a sleepy Somerset village.

As the local police struggle to solve the crime, the case becomes a national scandal and on the orders of the Home Secretary, Inspector Jonathan “Jack” Whicher, the so-called “Prince of Sleuths” from the newly formed Scotland Yard detective department, is despatched to the countryside to identify the killer and restore order, but this case is to prove the most difficult of his career.

Behind the seemingly respectable middle-class façade of the Kent family, Whicher discovers adultery, insanity and jealousy in a world populated by gossiping servants, a wicked stepmother and rebellious children. With the local police actively working against him, it’s a struggle for Whicher to find the evidence and nail the culprit.

Adapted from Kate Summerscale’s best-selling book, this gripping true story of murder, psychological suspense and courtroom drama has all the hallmarks of a classic Victorian murder mystery: a body, a detective and a country house full of secrets and suspects.
