On a scorching August day in 1757 when he was eight years old, Sebastian Audley’s life changed. And though he did not know it, the change would last for the next thirteen years.
Mr Audley left university with an Honours degree in Law, a superior ability at the chessboard … and A Plan.
The list of things he did not have was much longer.
He didn’t quit Cambridge with a host of happy memories or a coterie of firm and lasting friends; he’d never drunk himself witless nor gambled away a term’s allowance at cards. He hadn’t participated in any of the hilarious pranks beloved of undergraduates everywhere and he hadn’t visited a brothel; in fact, though he’d sooner his eyes were picked out by crows than admit it, he’d never even kissed a girl.
In short, Sebastian had spent three years acquiring a particularly fine education … and nothing else whatsoever.
The Plan, however, was designed to change all that.
