There is a mysterious stranger prowling the streets of London. After illegally returning to London from the prison island of Australia, Jack Maggs is on a quest for retribution and reconciliation.

Maggs quickly draws the attention of a cross section of London society, each with a plan in store for him. But Jack Maggs has plans of his own.

Set in 1837, from the Booker Prize-winning author of Oscar and Lucinda, Jack Maggs is a compelling mystery of scheming, revenge and intrigue.
