This entertaining novel is right at home alongside Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist and Leon Garfield’s Smith. In Victorian London, 12-year-old orphan Mog Winter prints wanted posters about all the dangerous villains. When a brute named Cockburn escapes prison, the ink on the posters is barely dry before Mog gets caught up in the criminal underworld. Soon thieves, crooked schemers - even murderers - are hunting Mog, but he doesn’t know why.
