Iain Lawrence's gripping novel depicts life on the dark side of nineteenth-century London. When Tom Tin's father lands in debtor's prison, Tom begins an adventure of survival, overcoming confinement on a prison ship bound for New South Wales and learning a secret from his past. John Keating's performance breathes life into this Dickensian story as he depicts the danger and misery faced by Tom. Keating transports the listener into this swashbuckling tale, making real Tom's fear, his hatred for his circumstances and the people responsible for them, and, ultimately, his optimistic faith that right will prevail.
