For me, this book just went on and on and on to the point that I just didn't care anymore. Part of the problem was that my expectations were too high because of the book jacket copy. "Maggs rises into the center, a dark looming figure, at once frightening, mysterious, and compelling." Hardly. Then the novel is compared to Caleb Carr's 'The Alienst.' Not even close. Nice try, Peter Carey. . .
