4 Cassettes, Complete and Unabridged.
Read by Stephen Fry.
An unabridged reading of the acclaimed children's story, set to become a modern classic.
Fleeing across a roof on a dark night in Victorian London, a thief crashes through a glass skylight to almost certain death. An ambitious young doctor revives and reconstructs his shattered body, proudly showing off his handiwork at the Scientific Society where the city's intelligentsia meet. It is there that the robber picks up the key to a new existence, and on his release from prison begins to lead a double life.
He becomes both the respectable, wealthy Montmorency and his degenerate servant, Scarper - while the police are baffled by a wave of mysterious and seemingly unstoppable thefts. Montmorency must be on his guard at every moment. The smallest mistake could reveal his secret and destroy both his lives.
