The dark and dangerous side of Victorian England comes to light in this tale of an orphan who finds himself in the middle of a mystery and a den of thieves. Being hunted because he looks like someone else, Mog is quickly cast into a threatening situation. Katy Kellgren expertly animates Mog, the printer’s devil, or helper, as well as the evil Cockburn and other miscreants who roam the back alleys and ships’ docks. Kellgren’s native British accent enhances the characterizations, and adds realism and background to the setting of the story. Reminiscent of Dickens in its use of description and view of the human condition, this novel has both fateful twists and lessons of hope.
