Publisher's Summary

Fleeing across a roof on a dark night in Victorian London, a thief crashes through a glass skylight to almost certain death. But an ambitious young doctor revives and reconstructs his shattered body, proudly showing off his handiwork at the Scientific Society where the city's intelligentsia meet. It is there that the robber picks up the key to a new existence, and on his release from prison begins to lead a double life.

It's good fun

I love Stephen Fry as a narrator. He did so well with Harry Potter and Oscar Wilde etc. I liked him in this too. But I don't know that this book suited him. Perhaps someone with a less "Cambridge accent" may have been more appropriate?

Nonetheless the story was really good fun and was very well put together. I enjoyed it.
