Christopher Rawson is one of the most powerful men in Halifax. He is a magistrate, banker, landowner and industrialist, with an impatient temper and no scruples when it comes to abusing his influence.

A longstanding thorn in Anne Lister’s side, with suspicions about her romantic life and a cruel sense of humour, Christopher pushes his rivalry with Anne into a new arena with his determination to bully her out of sinking her own coal pit.

Unfortunately he underestimates her resolve.
