Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Victorian England is a country of sharp divides between rich and poor, but James Lionel Falconer, who spends his days working at his father's market stall, is determined to become a merchant prince. Even as a child, he is everything a self-made man should be: handsome, ambitious, charming, and brimming with self-confidence. James quickly rises through the ranks, proving himself both hardworking and trustworthy, and catching the eye of Henry Malvern, head of the most prestigious shipping company in London. But when threats against his reputation -- and his life -- begin to emerge, James will have to prove that he truly is the master of his fate.
