Plunged into the criminal underworld of Victorian London, Billy the chimney sweep knows he must fight — or die.
But with notorious gang leader Archie Miller closing in on him, every turn he takes only leads to more trouble.
When the ‘Poor Man’s Earl’ offers Billy a chance to exchange his gangland life for an education, Billy must decide if his pride is too high a price to pay, and whether turning on Archie will mean freedom — or certain death.
A thrilling story of faith and survival, based on the work of the Seventh Earl of Shaftesbury.
Aimed at those of secondary school age, but adults will enjoy reading this too.
