Charles Dickens should be looking forward to Christmas. But when his latest book is a flop, his publishers give him an ultimatum: either he writes a Christmas book in a month or they will call in his debts and he could lose everything. In true Dickens style, this is a tale of ghosts and secrets, set in the heart of Victorian England.
