Mr. Fang, Fagin And The Artful Dodger's Next Chapters Continued.

At the conclusion is Charles Dickens' novel, _Oliver Twist_, Fagin, the Artful Dodgers and the rest of Fagin's crew of thieves are left to founder in the purgatory that generally awaits all minor literary characters. A fate they suffer until 2014, when Peter David pulls them forth from both their literary doom and the comforting shadows which shielded their enterprises from prying and judgmental eyes to answer some questions.

How did Jack Dawkins, a.k.a. the Artful Dodger, comes into Fagin's care? What is the twisted history that makes Fagin the thief-runner he becomes? What dark secret is the Magistrate, Mr. Fang hiding? What becomes of Fagin and his covey of thieves? And, most importantly, how is young Dodger going to foil a plot to seize control of the young Queen Victoria?

Quotes Charles Liked

Peter David
“It was tragic enough for the average citizen to know that bloodsucking monsters known as tax collectors already existed; to be informed that there were other inhuman bloodsuckers stalking the night as well, desiring to sink their fangs elsewhere than bank accounts, might simply have been too much for people to bear.”
Peter David, Artful
