The young settlement is shaken by a daring bank robbery and a spate of murders.  At the Governor's command, Nicodemus Dunne – a disgraced London thief-taker who is now the Running Patterer, a news-hawker roaming the streets of Sydney – sets out to discover the truth.

Sydney, 1828.  All is not well.  One of the convict colony's soldiers has been murdered and Governor Ralph Darling is not pleased.

Reluctantly, he turns to Nicodemus Dunne for help.  Dunne, a fallen Bow Street Runner now transported to Australia, makes his living as a running patterer, hawking news on the dusty streets.  Only he has the detective skills required to chase down the ritual killer and stop the ever-bewildering series of gruesome murders that follow the first.
