By Ernest Dudley

Meet George Barrington: Gentleman Pickpocket, Seducer and Wit. 

Barrington was lifted from the Dublin slums by a job with a troupe of strolling actors. He mastered the art of pickpocketing.

He practiced it in the sumptuous gambling hells and bordellos of London. Barrington lived the life of a pampered lord on his loot; men sought his friendship and women his love.

But then, he saw Zoe.

The lovely young octoroon with her blue-black hair and her strange, barbaric beauty. Here was the one woman he had to have. The one woman he would risk his fortune, his freedom, his life to possess! But, would she feel the same?

Across the squalor and luxury of 18th century London moves the fabulous adventurer, George Barrington. Here is the lusty, flamboyant tale of his wild career.

Picaroon is a fast-paced novel filled with romance, friendship, and loyalty.
