It is 1643.
England is in the throes of a brutal civil war.
Captain Francis Hacker returns to his home in the Vale of Belvoir after Parliament's Northern Association army has been routed at Adwalton Moor.
The defeat is a bitter experience, for Francis has lost many of his best men to the muskets and swords of Charles the First.
Out of the darkness and despair, Francis is asked by Parliament to lead a secret attempt to topple the King, thereby bringing months of death and destruction to an end.
Little does he realise, it will require him to become involved in a deadly deceit that puts everything he holds most dear at risk.
