About the book

How the British Empire turned artful dodgers into child killers

So much more than you might expect … profound, original … entertains & instructs. I urge you to read it. 

Miriam Margoyles, award-winning actress, patron of the Charles Dickens Museum in London and NSW Dickens Society.

This is the gripping real-life story of two young boys sent by the British Government as impoverished and unwanted juveniles to exile in the world’s first prison built exclusively for children.
