The love between an orphan and his street-thief companion is tested almost beyond endurance when they return to London and are hunted down by their darkest enemy.
After the cruel rejection from their families, Oliver and Jack brave the dangers they left behind to return to London and take up residence at the Three Cripples. The bedsit they share is small and riddled with bed bugs, but what does that matter when there is always cool beer on tap and the excitement and diversions of London are spread out before them?
While Jack returns to picking pockets, Oliver works in the tavern, serving beer and sweeping at the endless tide of dirt, struggling to retain what is left of his reputation, his dignity, and everything he ever thought he stood for. Amidst their happiness and plans for future contentment, Workmaster Chalenheim kidnaps them, assaults Jack, and leaves them both to die.
In the busy, noisy, crowded streets of London, where shadows hold secrets often too horrible to describe, can Oliver and Jack rebuild their shattered peace? Will their love for each other prove stronger than hate?
