Londres vers les années 1850, capitale de los angeles richesse et surtout de l. a. misère. Le jeune Roublard est un « ravageur », un de ces laissés-pour-compte des bas quartiers qui draguent les égouts en quête de menue monnaie ou d’objets de valeur. Aucun avenir ne l’attend. Jusqu’à cette nuit où, sous une pluie torrentielle, il vient au secours d’une mystérieuse jeune femme à los angeles merci d’un enlèvement. L’aventure a commencé. À lui de justifier son surnom.

À peine mâtiné de fantastique, Roublard est un hommage à Charles Dickens, lequel y tient d’ail leurs un rôle de foremost plan avec son ami Henry Mayhew, un des rares qui dénonçaient l’inhumaine situation faite au plus grand nombre. Puisqu’il inscrit son roman dans los angeles réalité de l’époque, Terry Pratchett y convoque allègrement l. a. reine Victoria, Disraeli, Robert Peel, le modernisateur de los angeles police londonienne, voire Sweeny Todd, le barbier mythique de Fleet road. Et ne s’interdit pas d’y exercer son humour… ravageur.
