Charley was a hard working Thief Taker, he grew up in an orphanage, the only direct family he knew was his brother, but he did have something which was a clue to his heritage. His mother had left him with a strange key, large and oddly shaped. When he saw an image of his key branded into the mutilated corpse of a young girl he was amazed. Unfortunately for him, many, many people also knew he had that key and this meant that he was soon a hunted man. His aim was to track down the last person to visit that poor girl. What a great story!
