In Charles Dickens' immortal classic OLIVER TWIST, the young hero was met on a London street corner by the Artful Dodger, whose real name is Jack Dawkins. Dodger took Oliver to his friend Fagin, who took him in hand and tried to make Oliver one of his boys. But once Dickens was finished with Dodger's part of the story, the author deported him. The Further Adventures and Life of Jack Dawkins begins on Jack's day of deportation to the United States. Upon seeing Boston harbor, Jack decides he should leave his street ways back in London and try to start a totally new life in the States. However, some of Jack's past is also part of his future, and dangerous enemies resurface to devastating results. In the adventures that follow Jack struggles to balance the gentlemanly ways of Jack Dawkins with the street-wise antics of the Artful Dodger. His greatest adventure, falling in love, also proves to be the most dangerous of them all.
