This Halcyon Classics ebook contains the three works of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Mucker trilogy, THE MUCKER, THE RETURN OF THE MUCKER, and THE OAKDALE AFFAIR. Burroughs (1875-1950) was a prolific author, best known for his characters Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, although he wrote in a number of genres including westerns and non-fiction. He completed more than seventy books during his career.
THE MUCKER and its two sequels tell the story of the street tough Billy Byrne, a low class "mucker, hoodlum, gangster, thug, and tough." He is not chivalrous nor kind, and has only meager ethics - never giving evidence against a friend or leaving someone behind. He chooses a life of robbery and violence, disrespecting those who work for a living. He has a deep hatred for wealthy society. A sort of anti-hero, Byrne fights his way through a series of adventures, tormented by the love for a high-society girl he cannot marry.
