It's 1820 (ish) and Betsy is a Brightonian, "at work". Having parted company from the St Mary's Home for Penitent Women, she's been given a "situation" by the knobs of the town, keeping an eye on the house of builder and land developer Thomas Kemp, lest he should return with the money he owes his creditors. Whilst she's there, she's required to give comfort to members of the brotherhood, and it isn't long before she meets Guardian of the Town and Chair of the Committee for the Provision of the poor, George Bintshaft.
Flowers arrive. Then wine, then dresses. A carriage to take Betsy to a private supper. More wine, soft words, and then a hot wine-laden breath, urgent whisperings, fumblings at the same dress....
