+Victorian fiction -- a thief who gets out of prison and creates a new life for himself, funded by a series of burglaries accessed through the sewers.
+We follow his attempts to fund and manage his new life as a member of the aristocracy, and avoid detection.
+(Yes, Joseph Bazalgette is involved.)
+
+It's fine?
+I kept reading to find out what happened, but I don't have a strong attachment to any of the characters, and I wasn't caught up in events.
+
+It's been on my shelf for a long time.
+I'm glad I've read it now, but I probably won't read the sequels.
