Step inside the mind of a thief in old world London. Know him through his intrigues, desires and regrets. A very good read.

Peter Carey turns into Charles Dickens in this very entertaining book. A good introduction to the author, whose other works have stylistic and plot artifices that might put off readers who were not comfortable with his writing. This books rolls along, misunderstanding piling upon misunderstanding, to a twisted and climatic ending
