No Thoroughfare by Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins

As a collaboration between lifelong friends Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins, No Thoroughfare was printed in novel form in December 1867 and produced as a play that same month.

When orphaned Walter Wilding finds that he has misinherited his fortune, it is up to his best friends and executors to undo the mischief. The search for the real Walter Wilding leads them to the Swiss Alps and beyond.

A sweet tale of mystery, intrigue, and love, No Thoroughfare is a whimsically short novel in play-like form that features some of our favorite Dickens iconic characters.

This volume contains both the novel and the play forms of No Thoroughfare bound together for the first time ever.

No Thoroughfare is available for purchase at,, and in the kindle store.
