    Combining macabre, shocking and entertaining stories, this is a history of the darker side of London in the years from the Restoration to the early 19th century, when Thief Takers were corrupt, the Bow Street Runners attempted to keep order and Hogarth and Gilray produced their artworks satirizing the capital's excess and debauchery. It uncovers the lives of those who acquired notoriety, whether through their crimes, capture and punishment or their untimely demise at the hands of quacks or ruffians.
