KIRKUS REVIEW

London of the mid 1800's bustles and crowds this picture of Jeffrey Wynne's protecting Peg Raiston whom he fears to love because of too close family ties. As thief- taker for justice John Fielding, in the company of the voluble Lawrence Sterne, and faced with the destruction of London Bridge, which will efface the evidence he seeks, Wynne roams the city, untangles the mysterious pursuit -- and persuades Peg....A definitely period piece-high tempered and high style.
