Memorial photographer Brock Blennerhasset makes a living out of photographing the dead in Victorian Ireland. With the help of his sharp-witted niece, Nancy, and eager new assistant, Conall Molloy, Blennerhasset commemorates the recently deceased for grieving families. When a series of murders threatens to sully Blennerhasset's reputation, tenacious detective Frederick Regan drags him into an investigation of Dublin's criminal underbelly. With a killer on the loose and a black-market trade of illicit pictures growing ever more dangerous, will Blennerhasset save his job or end up as dead as one of his subjects? Set within the fascinating historical period of postmortem portraiture, this darkly comic series blends murder mystery with delightfully macabre humor.
