The Artful Dodger is back doing what he does best: stealing, charming and leading a gang of petty thieves from the Seven Dials. But crime in London has become a serious business – and when Jack needs protection he soon finds himself out of his depth and facing the gallows for murder.

The evidence against him seems insurmountable, until a young reporter by the name of Oliver Twist takes up his cause. Can they extricate Dodger from Newgate in time to escape the noose and save that which he treasures most, or is he destined for Fagin’s fate?

Prepare for a thrilling adventure through Dickensian London with one of literature’s most memorable rogues.

The second instalment in James Benmore’s acclaimed Dodger series.

'Blows its predecessor away ... Emotive, cathartic and inspired ... How James Benmore has managed to mix Dickensian England and characters with a modern humour and outlook on the world and retain that feeling of the original is a marvel' Parmenion Books.

Tremendous fun - with an underlying theme which is deadly serious
Crime Review
Don't worry if you haven't read the first, or even Oliver Twist, this is stand-alone fun and action. For a really entertaining read go no further
We Love This Book
Dodger is back! And oh, how I've missed him! The book is a gripping, fast-paced adventure with memorable moments, both light and dark. The characters are wonderfully written and have depth and personality which make the reader care deeply about what happens to them. Dodger of the Dials is a real treat. To Benmore, I make this humble request: Please sir, I want some more
