And now for something completely different
To contrast with my recent posts, now I’m going to go back to historical fiction and books for younger readers.
Brief plot summary
Montmorency is a thief lurking in the streets of 19th century London. Captured by the police and gravely injured in the process, he is taken in by an eccentric young doctor who is going to use his success in treating Montmorency to secure his position in the London Scientific Society. Montmorency makes a discovery at one of these seminars that will inspire him in the greatest heist of his career.
