Jack lives his life as an outcast. He cares only about two things - trade and crime. Together with his two brothers, he wreaks havoc and indulges in a multitude of different professions, not all of them legitimate. There is no end to Jack's escapades, nor his luck, originality, and cunning, all of which he has in spades. A genuine adventure novel, this is unmissable for fans of Robert Louis Stevenson, Jules Verne, and William Golding.
