Moll Flanders was the creation of Daniel Defoe; over the years, many have wondered whether she was based on a real person or whether the creation of Moll was completely fictional. The author of this book treats Defoe's heroine as a real person and uses her twelve-year criminal career to provide a framework with which to examine in detail the criminal underworld, the courts, the prisons and the policing agencies of London of this period. Durston, a barrister, has made extensive use of contemporary court records and literary accounts explaining the criminal scene of the times as well as producing a detailed analysis of the main criminal justice issues of the era.
