Desperate to avoid her father's odious matchmaking scheme, Miss Eliza Osborne boards the Brighton coach for a visit to her beloved aunt. She quickly realizes, however, that a lady traveling alone is prey to all sorts of unsavory characters - and none so unsettling as Mr. Garrick Slaughter, just released from Newgate Prison. This gaol-bird, however, turns out to be quite the gentleman in convict's clothing. He is, in fact, the illegitimate son of a local lord.
