Overview

Gripping historical adventure set during the Great Fire of London. A young boy orphaned by the Plague learns to survive as a thief on the streets of London - until fire breaks out...

London, 1666. Orphaned by the Great Plague, Sam is soon starving on the streets - and desperate enough to steal some bread. He's quickly recruited as one of sinister Uncle Jack's children, and taught to pick pockets. If he gets caught by the law, the punishment will be death - and if he crosses Uncle Jack, it could be just as bad. Still, it's a living for Sam and his fellow thief Catherine... until the long, hot London summer means a blaze at the Pudding Lane bakery runs out of control... and they learn that Uncle Jack's schemes are far more evil than they knew.

Running for their lives from thiefmasters, thieftakers and the Great Fire of London itself, can two reluctant criminals save an innocent life - and their own skins?
