Constable Jackson Forge intends to make the world safer, or at least the streets of Victorian London. But that’s Kit Turner’s domain, a swindler who runs a crew that acquires money the old-fashioned way—conning the rich to give to the poor. When a local cab driver goes missing, Jackson is tasked with finding the man, and the only way to do that is by enlisting Kit’s help. If Jackson doesn’t find the cabby, he’ll be fired. If Kit doesn’t help Jackson, he’ll arrest her for thievery. Yet neither of them realize those are the least of their problems.
I received a digital copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and NetGalley. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
All thoughts and opinions are my own.
An overly eager police rookie makes some major mistakes and faces termination from the one job they’ve always dreamed of having. Presented with one last chance – to solve an unsolvable case in 48 hours – they must work with an unlikely ally from the streets.
Will they solve the case or will they lose their dream?
Synopsis from Zootopia or The Thief of Blackfriars Lane?
Whichever you picked; you were right.
They are nearly identical.
The first third of the book had me rolling my eyes at all the similarities. I stuck with the book, though, because I wanted to see if the author was just starting out this way and then would pull out a plot twist to make it all different. No such luck.
This story was cute and it was a good read, but it was just like Zootopia.
