Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed author of Finn comes a masterful reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol with this darkly entertaining and moving exploration of the twisted relationship between Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley.

Young Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley are very different in temperament when they meet in the gloomy confines of Professor Drabb’s Academy for Boys, but they form a bond that will endure for the rest of their lives. 

As years go by, with Marley’s genius for deception and Scrooge’s brilliance with numbers, they build a shipping empire of dubious legality and pitiless commitment to the slave trade, concealing their true investments under the noses of the London authorities. Circumstances change, however, when beautiful Belle Fairchild steps into Ebenezer’s life and calls into question the practices that made him wealthy. Under the influence of a newfound passion, Ebenezer tries to turn Scrooge & Marley’s business toward better ends, but his partner is not ready to give up his unsavoury past or easy profits so quickly. Ignoring the costs to themselves and those around them, the two engage in a shadowy war against each other, leading to an unforgettable reckoning that will echo into their futures. 

Brilliantly written in Jon Clinch’s signature spellbinding prose, Marley is an unforgettable reimagining that will forever deepen the way you view the Christmas classic.

Much, much better than I thought it would be !

This is the story of a Marley that Dickens could never write, a story of greed, love and sorrow. There are familiar names from A Christmas Carol, but not as we have known them from Dickens writing. To say more would give the story away, all I can say is that this covers the lives of the main characters in a very satisfactory way.
