Im Londoner Strassenmilieu um 1825: Tom Tins Vater ist Kapitän, findet jedoch kein Schiff, das er führen kann. Die Mutter ist seit dem Tod der jüngeren Schwester in Trauer versunken. Als Toms Vater wegen der Schulden ins Gefängnis kommt, will er Geld auftreiben. Dabei gerät er in einen Strudel von unglücklichen Ereignissen und Verwechslungen, die ihn zum Grabräuber werden lassen und schliesslich zum unschuldig verurteilten Mörder. Tom kommt zuerst auf ein übel geführtes Sträflingsschiff und nach einer missglückten Flucht, soll er nach Australien deportiert werden. Das Schiksal scheint unerbittlich zu sein, als Tom entdeckt, wer der Kapitän des Transportschiffs ist, auf dem er sich befindet. Es ist sein Vater, welcher geglaubt hat, sein Sohn sei schon lange tot. Der gruselige Abenteuerroman ist eindrucksvoll geschrieben. Die Spannung steigt bis zum Schluss immer mehr an, bis sich Vater und Sohn in einem ergreifenden Moment in den Armen liegen. Ab 12 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Klemens Dossinger
