"It is the end of the Napoleonic Wars, and England has just fought its last victorious battle against the French. As Rider Sandman and the other heroes of Waterloo begin to make their way back to England, they find a country where corruption, poverty, and social unrest run rampant, and where - justice - is most often delivered at the end of a hangman's noose. Nowhere in London are the streets as busy as in front of Newgate Prison, the city's largest penitentiary, where mobs gather regularly to watch the terrible spectale of the doomed men and women on the gallows' stands."
