About this title:

Synopsis: Excerpt: ...the first police spy that comes in my way!" "And yet you trust me!" the girl flung at him, her eyes scornful. To her they all, all seemed cowards. "Ay, but you are a woman," Giles answered. "And though I'm not saying there's no Polly Peachums, I've not come across them. Treat a maid fair and she'll treat you fair, that's the common way of it.
