In a Dickensian fantasy in which Dickens plays a part, a particularly adept and clever London sewer scrounger accidentally saves the life of a young noblewoman fleeing an abusive husband and then has to avoid the international assassin who wants them both.
You can't help enjoying Dodger and "Charlie" who spends a lot of time writing down bits of clever dialog for later use in his own writings. There's lots of running about in the sewers, a little violence, a corpse, a daring burglary and plenty of politics. A grand romp in which Pratchett disguises any plot holes with the amazing London fog which allows the viewer (and reader) to see what they hope or expect to see.
