The devil in the Marshalsea

Hodgson, Antonia, author

London, 1727 - and Tom Hawkins is about to fall from his heaven of card games, brothels and coffee-houses into a hell of a debtor's prison. The Marshalsea is a savage world of its own, with simple rules: those with family or friends who can lend them a little money may survive in relative comfort. Those with none will starve in squalor and disease. And those who try to escape will suffer a gruesome fate at the hands of the gaol's ruthless governor and his cronies. The trouble is, Tom Hawkins has never been good at following rules - even simple ones. And the recent grisly murder of a debtor, Captain Roberts, as brought further terror to the gaol
