    It's 1727. Tom Hawkins is damned if he's going to follow in his father's footsteps and become a country parson. Not for him a quiet life of prayer and propriety. His preference is for wine, women, and cards. But there's a sense of honor there too, and Tom won't pull family strings to get himself out of debt - not even when faced with the appalling horrors of London's notorious debtors' prison: The Marshalsea Gaol.

    London, 1728. Tom Hawkins is headed to the gallows, accused of murder. Gentlemen don't hang, and Tom's damned if he'll be the first. He may not be much of a gentleman, but he is innocent. He just always finds his way into a spot of bad luck. It's hard to say when Tom's troubles began. He was happily living in sin with his beloved, Kitty Sparks, though their neighbors were certainly less pleased about that.

    London, 1727 - and Tom Hawkins is about to fall from his heaven of card games, brothels, and coffeehouses to the hell of a debtors' prison. The Marshalsea is a savage world of its own, with simple rules: those with family or friends who can lend them a little money may survive in relative comfort. Those with none will starve in squalor and disease. And those who try to escape will suffer a gruesome fate at the hands of the gaol's rutheless governor and his cronies.

    England 1727. Tom Hawkins will lieber verdammt sein, als Landpfarrer zu werden wie sein Vater. Er liebt die Frauen, das Bier und das Glücksspiel - und landet eines Nachts im berüchtigten Londoner Schuldgefängnis "The Marshalsea". Schnell erkennt Tom, dass in diesem "Teufelsloch" nur überlebt, wer sich nützlich machen kann: Er verdingt sich als Ermittler in einem hinterlistigen Gefängnismord - eine Idee, an der sein düsterer Zellengenosse Fleet sogleich Gefallen findet. Doch Tom ist auf der Hut, gilt Fleet doch selbst bei den abgebrühtesten Bütteln des Marshalsea als Ausgeburt der Hölle.

    Im Spätfrühling 1728 macht sich Tom Hawkins auf den Weg ins wildromantische Yorkshire und tauscht die Verlockungen der Londoner Halbwelt gegen das elegante Ambiente eines herrschaftlichen Landsitzes. Hier lauern nicht weniger Gefahren; hier soll er, erpresst von der intriganten Königin, den Morddrohungen gegen den Gutsherrn John Aislabie auf den Grund gehen. Dieser hat den größten Finanzskandal des Jahrhunderts - die sogenannte "Südseeblase" - eingefädelt.
