When news of Charles Dickens's untimely death reaches the office of his struggling American publisher, Fields & Osgood, partner James Osgood sends his trusted clerk Daniel Sand to await the arrival of Dickens's unfinished novel. But when Daniel's body is discovered by the docks and the manuscript is nowhere to be found, Osgood must embark on a transatlantic quest to unearth the novel that he hopes will save his venerable business and reveal Daniel's killer. Danger and intrigue abound on the journey to England, for which Osgood has chosen Rebecca Sand, Daniel's older sister, to assist him.

After looking forward to reading this book, I was somewhat disappointed. The premise for the story is interesting (the loss of Dickenses' last but uncompleted novel) and the search which sends the hero to London. I found, however, that the storyline was hard to follow, probably because the various characters aren't developed enough and seem to appear out nowhere.

Enjoyed the book - a good depiction of the social climate of the time and an interesting take on the unfinished last novel of Dickens.
