Something strange is going on in the basement. Voices are calling. Taking a leap through time Tom meets the "monsters" of Bartholomew Fair. In the dark and seedy backstreets of eighteenth-century London, doctors are paying high prices for unusual bodies, and the "monsters" desperately need Tom's help. But Tom has problems of his own . . .
