Jacob Marley and Ebenezer Scrooge meet as youths in the gloomy confines of Professor Drabb's Academy for Boys. Years later, in the dank heart of London, their shared ambition manifests itself in a fledgling shipping empire. As Marley toys with the affections of Scrooge's sister, Fan, Scrooge falls under the spell of Fan's best friend, Belle. Now, for the first time, Scrooge and Marley find themselves at cross-purposes. The two engage in a shadowy war of deception that leads to an unforgettable reckoning that will echo into the future and set the stage for Marley's ghostly return. A masterful reimagining of Charles Dickens's classic from the author of Kings of the Earth
