Commencing with the supposed death of John Harmon, who's body is found in the Thames, Dickens' tale of hidden identities, greed and love is underpinned by the theme of wealth and its evils. Our Mutual Friend is considered one of Dicken's most sophisticated works, and first appeared in parts as it was written in 1864-65. Here we have it in book form published in the same year. Although Dickens lived until 1870, this is his last completed novel.
