    It is 1805, and England is in the midst of her war with France under Napoleon. Matthew Pryde, employed as engineer at a coal mine in Kent, is regarded as the perfect "spy" to send across the English Channel to investigate rumours that the French are digging a tunnel underneath the Channel. Matthew travels to France, accompanied by the mysterious Mr Black - and the rather unexpected addition of the unconventional Kate Denton - to try to find the existence of a tunnel on the French side.
