    A Child of the Jago is both thriller and condemnation of social conditions in the East End slums at the turn of the century. Boy hero Dicky Perrott is at heart full of humane instinct but his environment ensures his down fall. "It was my fate to encounter a place in Shoreditch where children were born and reared in circumstances which gave them no reasonable chance of living decent lives: where they were born fore-damned to a criminal or semi criminal career.

    If you could sum up A Child of the Jago in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, historical, dark.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Little Dicky of course followed by the priest.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the neglected baby dies, it was heartbreaking and I think such a sad reminder of what people are capable of.

    Overall

    This book is interesting and very informative for a business owner. I love Tony's style of writing - it's very natural and you feel like you know him. I would recommend this book to other business owners and my employees.
