by Michael L. Ricciardi and John D. Nugent

Albany, New York. 1889. Cobbler Claus is a very happy man. He owns a successful shoe repair shop and is about to be engaged to the beautiful Angie Rose. But the Burgonmaster (Mayor) also has eyes for Angie. And the busy-body, mettlesome Mrs. Mettle is making matters worse. Greed, jealousy and revenge make for devastation of the town, but Claus has a lucky pipe. And a stranger named Nicholas.
