Late on a Monday night in August 1947, a police constable finds the battered corpse on an impoverished old man lying on the concrete steps of a laneway. Samuel Rossiter's death appears to have been the result of an unfortunate accident. But Inspector Eric Stride of the Newfoundland Constabulary is not convinced, and his investigation uncovers a trail of evidence and circumstance that goes back more than three decades. And at the end of that trail, Stride finds himself caught up in a complex story of privilege and tragedy.
