The mystery is action packed and Timothy's analysis of his relationship with his father and ultimate acceptance of his death is poignant. Very enjoyable

It's another take on a Dickens character. More in-depth, more saucy, more intriguing. If you want to feel like you're back in Dickens' London, this is the book for you. Timothy Cratchit is all grown up and solving crimes.

Normally I'm not a fan of books where authors co-opt a famous literary character, but I enjoyed this book. (Tiny) Tim spends a lot of time trying to speak to his dead father and deal with the fact that his siblings have drifted off into their own lives. The author displays a real affection for nineteenth century language.

Excellent fictional account of the adult life of Timothy Cratchit. A crippled hero for the youngsters involved in sinister child sex trade during the 18th century. Wonderfully written.

I really enjoyed this book, it did take me awhile to get into it but it was so worth it. If you like the Dicken's style of writing you will come to really like this book. Story has lots of substories within each of the characters you meet. Stay with it and you will be rewarded with a great thriller.

This book was so much better than I thought it would be! And the scrapes that Tim got into! Tho I have to warn a person, it is NOT the innocent little book you might expect! Oh no, it shows the gore and messyness of the backstreets of London of the 1850's and is quite honest about it!
As a sequel to A Christmas Carol, I wouldnt really call it that, its as if Dickens had Oliver grown up (of Oliver Twist) and what his life would be like as an adult. Very well written, you get sucked up into the story quite quickly and it is hard to let it go.

An interesting exploration of the possible continuation of Timothy Cratchit from A Christmas Carol. I found it interesting to see the back story and Tim's complicated relationship with his father. His pursuit of the mystery in the story serves as a secondary backdrop to the other characters who are reasonable facsimilies of Dickensian characters but none of them have quite the depth of pathos that Dickens was such a master of. Still an interesting read.
