Clean drinking water. It’s something that the majority of people in the Western world take for granted but for many on Earth, it is a luxury that remains seemingly out of reach. In A Dangerous Legacy the history of water in the New York tenements comes to life amidst the backdrop of a scintillating mystery and romance. It’s the turn of the century and an exciting time for global news. With the advent of the telegraph and its wires that span the globe, the world has never been more connected. Keeping people informed is a competitive business and the fledgling AP (Associated Press) news service is battling for survival. This American answer to the powerful British run Reuters News Agency employs dozens of telegraph operators with a mastery of Morse code and a drive to succeed. Lucy Drake is a firm believer in the AP and what they do and is one of their most fervent employees, zealously manning her vital telegraph station. That is not her only mission in life however.
