When a petty thief falls though a glass roof in his attempt to escape from the police, what should have been the death of him marks the beginning of a while new life. After his broken body is reconstructed by an ambitious young doctor, he is released from prison, and--with the help of Victorian London's extensive sewer system--he becomes the most elusive burglar in the city. He adopts a dual existence as a respectable, wealthy gentleman named Montmorency, and his degenerate servant Scarper. But Montmorency must always be on guard. The smallest mistake could reveal his secret and ruin both his lives.

    " This is the first in a series of four (so far). It's billed as a children's book but I would recommend it to readers of all ages. The characters are well-developed and the imaginative narration is fun to follow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Randa | 2/13/2014

    " THIS SERIES IS A GREAT ONE FOR THOSE WHO LIKE MYSTERY AND SUSPENSE, BUT IN A MILD FORM. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Monica | 2/10/2014

    " Very interesting premise, but at times it was difficult to hold my attention. The second one is so far much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Alan | 2/2/2014

    " Looking forward to reading the next one. I liked how the plot shifts completely (no spoiler here) by the end of the book leading into the sequel. It did take me a few chapters to get into the story and get used to the older English used in the writing. Lots of action and mystery included as well as fun well developed characters. I worry that my students will trip up on how it goes back and forth from Montmorency to Scarper and they are same person, but different characters. "
