STAND AND DELIVER! YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE! The original dandy highwayman is back! Henry Downes Miles’s swashbuckling tale of Richard Palmer (better known as Dick Turpin)’s notorious career has it all—action, suspense, peril, treachery, romance! And, of course, a horse called Black Bess. Follow the rise and fall of the most famous gentleman of the road, from his first forays on the turnpike to his eventual capture and execution. Many tales have been written about Turpin over the years, but this is the earliest penny blood to feature the legendary knight of the road, which has been newly transcribed and formatted from Thomas White’s 1839 edition.
