Illegitimate daughter of a debauched nobleman; ragged pickpocket of the slums; wife of a tilted wastrel; unstable paramour of men of low estate and high. But finally and forever she was a slave to the lust of Innocent Paradine, king of highway men, the man who had fiercely claimed her virgin body, who followed her passionate career with vengeful jealousy and who fathered her only child when she fled from the salons of the West End to become half a legend in the stews and bagnios of the London underworld. Here is the colorful, strife-torn world of England in the early 19th century, from the dissolute court of Carleton House to the orgy of a prostitutes wedding in Cheapside. Here is the story of a beautiful woman who rose from squalor to become the most talked-of figure of her day.
