Damned Charity

England. The East Midlands, Autumn 1766. The Industrial Revolution has began and folk are leaving the land and moving to the towns only to find that many goods are in short supply. At the Nottingham Goose Fair traders are buying up and stockpiling basic foodstuffs whilst local farmers are sending their wares further afield to achieve a greater profit. Daniel Thorpe, a Stockinger from Shardlow has set up a stall at the fair with his companions Jake and Charity. Anticipating the outbreak of trouble, Jake offers to take Charity home, leaving Daniel in the town to arrange for a shipment of cloth. However, as Daniel is on his way to the meeting, rioting breaks out and he becomes trapped in the town. Upon returning home, he discovers that Charity has gone missing, her family believing that Jake has abducted her. Daniel joins in with the hunt for them but when a mutilated corpse is found the finger of suspicion turns upon him. With his liberty and his life in jeopardy the race is on to discover the truth but Daniel needs time and for him, time is rapidly running out.
