    With scars on his back and silver in his pocket, the huge figure of Jack Maggs strides across the rich landscape of 19th century London. As this enigmatic man moves through its streets and houses, his single-minded quest to find his son will engender love, deceit, and vengeance in the lives around him.

    Overall

    I have been fascinated by this book. The story has surprised me many times by not taking the expected direction. It's complex and the vocabulary is thrilling. The story takes you to an interesting time period, Spring, 1837. The historical details are riveting. I want to read many more books by this author.

    And, my emotions are engaged. I really care about Jack, and the others. It is tragic and moving; funny and hopeful; scary and homey. Quite an accomplishment.
