Summary
The real-life Jonathan Wild, gangland godfather and self-styled 'Thieftaker General', controlled much of the London underworld until he was executed for his crimes in 1725. Published in 1743, this is at the same time a black comedy, an incisive political satire, and a serious exploration of human 'greatness' and 'goodness'
