Description

In the early hours of the 8th of September 1880, an explosion rocked the small town of Seaham Harbour. That explosion led to what has become known in the mining history of the North East of England, as The Seaham Pit Disaster. Over one hundred and sixty men lost their lives. Harry Hanson had just returned home to his native North East. He was about to be thrown into the aftermath of the disaster. Too many men had died, on that fateful night. The town now has too many grieving widows and orphans. The remaining miners had gone on strike. An increasingly anxious owner has aggravated the situation by bringing blackleg labour into the town. Harry Hanson wants to find out who or what might have caused the explosion for both professional and personal reasons. Harry wants to know who has brought the ex-soldiers into the town and why they are agitating the striking miner's, He also wants to know who is trying to destroy a town and bring about the destruction of its main source of employment. Pits sunk and owned by the Londonderry family? Against a backdrop of political intrigue, striking and rioting miners, blacklegs and a town descending into anarchy Harry Hanson must fight to save a town and its people, push himself to the limits of human endurance and overwhelming odds and find out the real truth behind; The Seaham Pit Disaster.
