Naughty, funny, complicated, hilarious, touching,scary, creepy, all of above. Clever plotting as per usual for Ms Morgan, so much so I can rarely keep up, being more of a Godfrey than a Miss Alpiew. But I don't care, I'm there for the ride through, around, out of and back into historical, crude, noisy,crowded,stinking London in all it's glory. Banking features, insurance, a bewildered hangman, blaggards, cheats and thiefs. 17th c? Or is it early 18th? Anyway, good fun, a good read. Recommended.
