In the early 1960s, Sergeant John Coffin has bought a house in Mouncy Street in South-East London. However not only has he bought a house - with it comes more than one body. During the investigation that follows, Coffin makes contact with the world of fashion at the Belmode clothing factory.

The body of an adolescent boy is found by workmen under the floor of detective John Coffin’s house – and though it's not his case, Coffin keeps up with an investigation that comes to centre on his own neighbours.
Attracted to Rose Hilaire, the sergeant learns that her son was a friend of the murder victim and of other missing boys. Rose's troubles multiply as she fights to protect her son and her dress factory, hard-won after years of poverty. The business is threatened not only by scandal but by Rose's designer, Gaby Glass, who schemes to take off with her creations.
