How the Marquis Got His Coat Back by Neil Gaiman

 

The Marquis de Carabas died, but he's currently getting better though when he came to his coat was gone.  The Marquis begins searching throughout London Below, however he has to contend with various consequences to his past actions.  Yet while dealing with those consequences, the Marquis uses the actions of others to his own advantage to get out of scraps and eventually get his coat back.  Although the reader probably needs to read Nevermore to get a better idea of the world, Gaiman adequately gives the reader a sense of London Below but not as good as some other authors have done which is why the rating is a little low.
