Summary
Sam and Lizzie are freezing and hungry on the streets of Victorian London. When Sam asks a wealthy man for some coins, he is rudely turned away. Months of struggle suddenly find their focus, and Sam resolves to kill the man. Huddling in a graveyard for warmth, Sam and Lizzie are horrified to see the earth around one of the tombs begin to shift, shortly followed by the wraithlike figure of a ghostly man. He warns Sam about the future which awaits such a bitter heart, and so begins Sam's journey led by terrifying spirits through the past, present and future, after which Sam must decide whether to take the man, Scrooge's, life or not
Summary
In a twist on one of Dickens's classic stories, young Sam vows revenge against the miser Scrooge, who refuses to help him escape the cold, but when he takes shelter in a graveyard, Sam gets a ghostly warning about the perils of his bitterness
