The large reward prompts the pair to combine forces as Bradbury & Hood, Investigators. Georgina will also write down their escapades for Blackwood's Magazine. While in Tenerife they uncover an art smuggling racket and later meet up with Scotsman Edward Wathen Fyffe and his wife and are instrumental in Fyffe exporting bananas to Great Britain. Back in England, they set up an office in London and advertise in the quality periodicals. Richard does the leg-work, while Georgina supplements funds with her writing and illustrating. Then, while investigating the background of an heiress, Georgina discovers that she was unofficially adopted. Georgina was actually an illegitimate waif from Gateshead. The pair of them undertake a search for the background roots of the heiress and Georgina. This quest takes them to the North-East, to West Pelton colliery where Georgina learns she'd had an older brother who died in the 1866 disaster. In the mining village near the Auckland Park colliery, Georgina finally meets her real mother and learns how and why she was given away to 'the gentleman and lady in the smart carriage'.
