Getting the upper hand, Sam confronts the high society folk in his recent past to get a few things straight. True identities are discovered, but why the game of revenge, and the parallel to the tale of the Count of Monte Cristo?
A sell out by Gosden’s own wife could be the final blow that ruins him. Confronting Cristoff again, Sam learns deep, and long running family secrets. Will tempers flare? Can Sam stop a murder from needlessly going down?
