Smith was only twelve and, hangings apart, had seen no more than three men murdered in all his life.

London in the 1700s. Highwaymen & the hangman are counted amongst Smith’s friends. Pickpocket by trade, he steals from the wrong country gentleman & witnesses a brutal murder. But not before he’s stolen the document that was worth killing for; the document that could change his fortune, if only he could read. Smith sets off on a quest, that plunges him into the depths of mystery, betrayal & blind justice.

For young adults aged 12+ and their families, filled with music, humour and fast paced action!
