Greed, suspicion and hypocrisy flourish as family and other hangers-on compete to be shown preference in the inheritance of the aging Martin Chuzzlewit.

It features some of the most notorious Dickens villains, Seth Pecksniff and Jonas Chuzzlewit, as well as one of his most endearing characters, Tom Pinch. This captivating reading is by Sean Barrett, who was last heard in Bleak House.
