Summary
Matthew Corbett, the early 18th-century American problem solver is transported across the Atlantic to London, where he<U+2019>s clapped into hellish Newgate Prison on murder charges. Matthew quickly becomes embroiled in mysteries involving fellow inmate Daniel Defoe; a gin-running street gang, the Black-Eyed Broodies; a kidnapped Italian opera singer; and a masked avenger named Albion, whose exploits are sensationalized (along with Matthew<U+2019>s) in a penny dreadful broadsheet, the Pin<U+2014>all the while with Matthew<U+2019>s patron, Hudson Greathouse, and Matthew<U+2019>s sweetheart, Berry Grigsby, in hot pursuit. McCammon<U+2019>s intricate and intersecting subplots keep the story twisting unpredictably, and he adds menace to the mayhem with hellish descriptions of London straight out of a Hogarth engraving: all bawds and brutes a-wallow in the squalor of the city<U+2019>s seamy street life
