Description

Jack Maggs returns to the London of his childhood, risking death at the hands of the hangman. His secret mission, to locate the young aristocrat who owes his wealthy lifestyle to the former convict, sends him on a wild journey in the company of a mesmerising novelist who wants Maggs's story at any price. Mercy the maid, as smart as she is pretty, takes more than a passing interest in Jack's affairs.
