Set in 1887-1891 Heads or Tails follows the path of a silver coin as it changes hands between two fgamilies, the rich socialite Bolts family, Heads, and the poor house hold maid Sophie and her family of Tails. As the coin changes, falls, flips and swaps hands the two families are brought together by love and anger. Nathaniel Bolts is a Head. Though he pulls away from his lavish upbringing, to the dissapointment of his conservative mother, Nathaniel insists on befriending the tails and travelling abroad to earn his money rather than accept inheritance alone. However, Paris changes Nathaniel as he realises that he is not as tough as he thought and that Americans travelling to Paris on 'business' are a lot worse than anything Nathaniel has been faced with. During his time in captivity Nathaniel is forced to pay off debts he wrongfully owes and along the way begins to lose himself to paranoia and a mechanical need to protect the one he loves by any means necessary.
The antagonist Aruther corrupts Nathaniel's mind, blocking any escape Nathaniel has to rebuilding his life. With the life of his youngest sister, and love of his life Clara supposedly on the line Nathaniel begins his twisted and broken journey through the last few weeks of his tormented life.
