Publisher's Summary

John Harmon, the heir to the Harmon estate discovers that his father's will requires him to marry Bella Wilfer, a woman whom he's never met, in order to claim his inheritance. But, when the body of a young man is found in the River Thames, his papers identify him as the heir to the Harmon estate, and Bella's hopes to marry into riches are diminished, and she's then pursued by a mysterious John Rokesmith.

What will happen to the inheritance and will it change people's lives for better or worse? What will become of Bella, the girl the dead man was supposed to marry? And what is the mysterious Mr. Rokesmith hiding?

Dickens' final book warns of the corrupting effects of money and ambition, set among the high society of Victorian London. It is full of colorful characters and exciting plot twists. Strangely, the original manuscript of this book had to be rescued from the remains of a train crash in which Dickens was involved.

    "A marathon read"

    Has felt rather like running a marathon - a hard slog but just had to get to the end. A tortuous plot and had to concentrate to keep track. It includes all Charles Dicken's favourite themes; poverty, the corruption of money, hatred of the legal profession along with a wide variety of quirky and amusing characters. The narration was marvellous and brought to life the characters in the book really well.

    "That Old Dickens!"

    Any lover of Eng. Lit. Will enjoy this last novel of his--but it requires endless patience to sort out all the characters and keep straight the complex of plot threads. Very funny in spots, and way too sentimental toward his heroines, as always, but readers will enjoy groveling in the chill, gritty, charcoal fog with its endless swindlers, phonies and cold blooded killers.
