Yes, this is the Dodger of Oliver Twist grown up, or at least twenty. Deported to Australia where he was befriended by an Aborigine, Warrigal, they are now both in London for a disreputable Lord of the Realm has Dodger pardoned so the young thief can once again mix with London’s underworld. Said Lord needs the lad to find a jewel Fagin hid all those years ago. This is pure boys-own adventure, light, frivolous and fun. It begins a series.
