In 1846, young Richard Fielding has to leave his comfortable home in Warwick, and work in a Birmingham factory. Soon he is wanted for murders which he has not committed.
Not knowing who to trust, especially his guardian, Richard is helped by Jenny Barlow, a work colleague in the same factory. But suspecting Jenny is not all that she appears to be, Richard makes his own escape.
He is soon being hunted by the police and various radical factions, who are planning a revolution. Taking refuge with a gang of railway navvies, his future looks anything but secure, especially when his true identity is discovered. Why does everybody want the strange rings which Richard mysteriously received? And how is the shadowy English spymaster, known only as the Spider, involved?
Then there is the devious Mallory Kempe who has his own, very personal reasons for ruining Richard`s life and wanting him dead: and who better to do his bidding than the merciless Jasper Turnbull.
Against these odds, Richard struggles to clear his name and survive!
