Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
London in the 1920s is no place for a woman with a mind of her own. Gang wars, violence, and an unforgiving world have left pickpocket Alice Diamond scrambling to survive in the gritty neighborhood her family has run for generations. Recruited by the enigmatic Mary Carr, Alice chooses to break her father's edict against gangs and become part of a group of lady shoplifters, the Forty Elephants. Leaving the Mint behind, Alice Diamond tastes success. But it's not long before she wants more, no matter the cost.
