Nineteen-year-old pianist Nell Hallam lives in a modest corner of Mayfair with her brother Matthew, an inspector at Scotland Yard. In order to afford the Royal Academy, Nell gets a gig playing piano in a popular Soho music hall, the Octavian—and the fact that she will have to disguise herself as a man and slip out at night to do it doesn't deter her. Making her series debut, Nell stumbles upon the operations of an infamous crime ring working in the shadows of the music hall, and to further complicate matters, she has begun to fall for the hall owner's charismatic son, Jack, who has secrets of his own. When another performer is left for dead in an alley as a warning, she realizes her future could be in jeopardy in more ways than one.
