(Adam Rothenberg )
An American, a one-time Pinkerton detective and a U.S. army surgeon, Captain Homer Jackson is an expert in the world of early forensics. Enlisted by Reid for his unique skills on the autopsy slab, he is a free spirit, both untrustworthy and brilliant by equal measure. But his thirst for vice including women, booze and gambling leaves him hated by Drake and distrusted by the rest of the police fraternity.
Jackson has his secrets, too. On the run from an ‘incident’ in America, he and brothel-keeper, Long Susan, have sought out the East End precisely for its chaos and lawlessness. Reid’s attachment to Jackson – and the friendship the two like-minded men inevitably foster – will eventually compromise this need for secrecy.
