Story: Responding to an advertisement in the Times, Llewelyn finds himself working for enquiry agent, Barker. His first case with Barker is the murder of a Jewish teacher, Pokrzywa, who bears a strong resemblance to El Greco's Christ, and who has been crucified. Sir Moses Montefiore links the murder to a growing tide of Anti-Semitism in the country. They attend the dead man's funeral, and arrange to talk with those who knew him. Llewelyn continues his training in the skills he will need as Barker's assistants and meets more of Barker's contacts. Barker enquires into Pokrzywa's relationship with Rabbi Moccatta's daughter, and in his rooms they find his journals. Barker detects a recent growing interest in Christianity in Pokryzywa leading up to his death. Their continuing investigations take them among Londons anti-Semite and eugenicist communities. Llewelyn is shot at, and the shooting may be linked to the Camorra. At a meeting of Jews, Llewelyn hears of the Golem, and finds himself working as a servant in a rabbi's house. While he is there another biblical murder occurs, this time a woman. A pitched battle in Petticoat Lane and a betrayal lead the case to its conclusion, after which Barker strikes a deal with Lord Rothschild.

Story: Bainbridge brings Barker a pawn ticket found in the sleeve of Barker's late assistant, Quong. What they redeem from the pawn shop, where the owner had died a month previously, is a secret manual from the Xi Jiang Monastery in Jiangsu Province. Ho advises them to show the book to triad boss K'ing, but Barker refuses. Bainbridge is shot as they leave Ho's Limehouse restaurant. The following day, Llewelyn is attacked by a Chinese maid and loses Barker's dog, which is later returned by Jimmy Woo, an interpreter. Llewelyn visits a Chinese bonesetter, and Barker is summoned to meet Campbell-Ffinch of the Foreign Office, who tells them that the Chinese Government wishes the book returned. After the inquest on Bainbridge, Ho is arrested. Barker's house is broken into, and Bainbridge's files are burned.

Their investigations turn up a dead monk, a dead gypsy chandler, and a sealskin coat. Llewelyn comes across another dead sailor, and reads of Lord Saltire's death, and Poole brings news that Ho is now suspected of being Mr K'ing. Barker's office is invaded by Hooligan and his men, looking to broker a deal between Barker and K'ing for the book. Barker collapses, and Applegate diagnoses kidney failure, and Llewelyn rides Juno to fetch Quong's father to help. Jenkins asks if he should refer clients to Hewitt. Llewelyn visits an opium den with Zangwill, now working as a reporter, in search of K'ing. They meet Forbes inside, and see K'ing outside.

As he recovers, Barker tours Limehouse. His houses are searched by the police. He and Llewelyn watch Campbell-Ffinch bare-knuckle fighting. Llewelyn takes a gypsy girl to dinner. The police catch a suspect outside Barker's house, leading to accusations over one of the murders. Poole suggests the case should have gone to Abberline or Swanson. Barker and Llewelyn attend a Chinese New Year party, and are taken captive at the following day's festivities by K'ing and taken to his underground lair, where he waits with his marmoset. Barker's ward, Bok Fu Ying, has also been taken captive. Barker agrees to face trial by combat. After the fight, he asks Poole to gather the suspects together.

Story: After the first two Ripper murders, Llewelyn and Zangwill's patrol of Whitechapel is interrupted by the unexpected appearance of Barker. Anderson enlists Barker to work on the case as an employee of Scotland Yard. Barker rents rooms at the Frying Pan Inn in Whitechapel.
After reviewing the case files, and meeting John Pizer, Barker and Llewelyn receive a summons from Baron Rothschild and another from Buckingham Palace.

A focus on the Jewish community of Whitechapel, and political wranglings at Scotland Yard complicate matters, while a visit to a male brothel disturbs Llewelyn. After a night at the theatre, they are summoned to the site of Liz Stride's murder and shortly thereafter to that of Catherine Eddowes. A body is found in the foundations of New Scotland Yard, and Barker and Llewelyn follow a bloodhound. Llewelyn is briefly reunited with Rebecca Mocatta, and tours the lunatic asylums of the East End. He gets a sewing job in a mantle factory, and Barker delivers a baby, before the killer is found.

NOTE: Llewelyn describes Jenkins's appearance at Scotland Yard as "Like seeing a tram car coming down a country lane" (P.92), the same words used by Sherlock Holmes in "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans" to describe his brother Mycroft. Likewise, Barker's comment to Llewelyn "I never get your limits" (P.99), echoes that of Holmes to Watson in "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire".

They also read that the Bookman is rumoured to be back in town. Orphan and Lucy are present during a book-bomb attack on the Rose Theatre by the Bookman. Inspector Irene Adler is in charge of the investigation into both cases. The next attack, at the launch of a Martian probe, takes Orpan's fiancée, Lucy, as its victim.

After he wakes in hospital, where he is attended by Dr W., Inspector Adler hints to Orphan, that Lucy may be able to be brought back to life. After attending an animal baiting event, he thinks he sees Lucy, and is abducted in a blimp by Mycroft, who tells him of Sherlock's death and the reason why he and Dr W., consort with resurrectionists. Mycroft instructs Orphan to find the Bookman.

Orphan's quest takes him through the human oddities and automata at Maskelyn's Egyptian Hall, where he first hears about the Binder, before he comes face to face with the Bookman in his underground world. The Bookman sends Orphan on a new quest, to Caliban's island, on which he is accompanied by Jules Verne and Captain Dakkar. En route he faces pirates, meets a spider and loses a thumb. A visit to an underground village provides some clues to his own past.

Back in a changed London, he makes an unexpected acquaintance in prison, after encounters with Jack the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes, and learns of Colonel Moran's involvement in his family history.

A messenger boy is killed in Bangkok. In St Mary Mead, a retirement community for secret agents, Smith (whose house number is "6") is visited by Fogg, who tells him of Mycroft and Alice's deaths. That evening an abduction attempt is made on him by a Hapsburg airship. A second attempt takes place in Market Blandings. He agrees to investigate the series of agents' deaths that Alice's and Mycroft's were part of. Oliver Twist assists Smith after the killing of the Byron Automaton and his abduction by Rochefort. His quest leads him to the Bookman's lair.

In Abyssinia, Lucy Westenra and a team that includes Lord Alfred Douglas are on a mission to capture the Church of Our Lady of Zion. After her return with the lizardine artefact she has recovered, she is told of Bram Stoker, missing in Carpathia, and taken before the Lizard Queen Victoria. She witnesses a meeting between Fogg and the Bookman, and hears the story of Orphan and Lucy from Miss Havisham.

The Council of Chiefs sends Houdini to London to find out what has become of Babbage. He remembers being killed at the White City Exposition in 1893, and his mission to Roanoke Island the following year, when he met Carter and the Bookman.

Smith meets Van Helsing in Paris, where he is continuing his search for the Harvester. They seek advice from Q (Quasimodo) in th catacombs, where they also do battle with Rochefort, and find Viktor (Frankenstein) in his ruined laboratory. They emerge from underground to find Paris on fire.

Houdini finds himself in Limehouse. Fagin leads him to Jonathan Harker, but he is taken captive by Paul Dombey.

Miss Havisham tells Lucy how the Bureau came to be interested in Stoker, and of Krupp's work on developing a new power source. The airship Stoker arives on comes under attack in Richmond Park.

Stoker's journal tells of his involvement with Krupp, and his journey to Transylvania.

Van Helsing and Smith face dog-men and the alien machines attacking Paris at the Eiffel Tower. On the streets below, Smith comes face to face with the Harvester.

Houdini is taken prisoner in Transylvania, and Lucy in London, before making her way to a rendezvous at the Palace.
