by Charles Dickens: adapted for radio by Mollie Hardwick
The story is told, with the words of Charles Dickens, by Francis de Wolff
with John Gabriel, Denys Blakelock, Brian Oulton

Many have been the theories advanced to account for Edwin's disappearance, and to name his suspected murderer. Mollie Hardwick suggests yet another solution in the closing minutes of this radio play.
