James, a first-year student at Cambridge, finds himself seduced by a covert and exclusive circle of friends – the 'Tudor Night Climbers' – who scale the university's turrets after dark. When still only a novice member of his tribe, James begins to fall for the enigmatic Jessica, and is soon at the heart of a fatal love triangle with the reckless and charismatic leader of the group, Francis. When a volatile relationship finally explodes, the Night Climbers' funding suddenly dries up, until Francis dreams up a heist that will secure them millions, but will also test their very souls.
