Joshua Bloom
David Verrey ...


Joshua Bloom is killed in an explosion at his house, supposedly by one of his homemade bombs as he was a member of a radical Jewish group. The group is linked to a strike at the docks, but Jackson establishes that Joshua was murdered. Joshua's brother Isaac tells Reid it was because he had recognized a spy for the Russian secret police, who had come to Whitechapel. Going undercover as a striker, Jackson identifies the spy, whose assignment is to whip up hatred against Jewish groups by launching a bombing campaign for which the Jews will be blamed. Reid is appalled to learn that the thuggish special branch officer, Constantine, approves this. Reid has to prevent a bombing outrage on a scale far larger than Constantine had imagined. Reid also confides in Deborah Goren how he lost his daughter, whose body was never found after a boating accident. They kiss but are observed by Drake. Written by don @ minifie-1
