Summary
  • "Agatha DeLacey's family isn't rich or titled, so studying nursing at Ingold's East End hospital in London is a rare opportunity for her. Despite the school's focus on the innovative Bio-Mechanical program, Aggie cares more about the desperately poor human patients who flood the hospital, even if that means providing unauthorized treatment after-hours...and trusting a charming, endlessly resourceful thief. But the Artful Dodger is barely a step ahead of his underworld rivals, the menacing Bill Sykes and mercurial Oliver Twist, and Aggie's association with him soon leads her into danger. When a brutal attack leaves her blind, she and the Dodger find themselves at the mercy of an experimental Bio-Mech surgery. Though the procedure restores Aggie's sight, her new eyes come at an unnerving cost, and the changes in Dodger are even more alarming--instead of seeing Aggie as the girl he fancies, he now views her as a potential threat. As war between England and Germany brews on the horizon and a sinister medical conspiracy threatens to shatter the uneasy peace in Europe, Aggie and the Dodger must find a way to work together so they can protect their friends and expose the truth...even if it means risking their own survival"--Jacket flap
  • Publisher Annotation: Oliver Twist gets a fresh take on this reimagining of the Dickensian classic taking the familiar characters and turning them on their heads in a historical thriller packed with weird science, political suspense, and steamy romance
