Summary

A dead body is dredged from the Thames, presumed to be the son of wealthy miser John Harmon, in Dickens’ final novel, Our Mutual Friend.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition has an introduction by Lucinda Dickens Hawksley and original illustrations by Marcus Stone.

John Harmon made his fortune collecting ‘dust’, and on his death his estranged son is due to inherit his wealth on the condition that he marry Bella Wilfer, a young woman who he has never even met. But when his son is presumed dead, John’s riches pass to his servants Mr and Mrs Boffin and they in turn take Bella into their own home. They hire a secretive young man, John Rokesmith, to be Mr Boffin’s secretary – but what is this man’s real identity and what is his interest in Bella?

In his last complete novel with its expansive cast of characters and interweaving plots, Dickens exposes the corrupting power of money.
