Itís 1727. Tom Hawkins is damned if heís going to follow in his
fatherís footsteps and become a country parson. Not for him a
quiet life of prayer and propriety. No, he loves women: lots of them.
Ale: jugs of it. And gambling. But Tomís principled and proper too, and wonít pull family strings to get himself out of debt. Not even when faced with the very real horrors of Londonís notorious debtorsí prison: The Marshalsea Gaol. Offered the opportunity to free himself by solving a murder, Tom finds his principles tested to the limit.
