Like the river itself, the book has depths beyond the mystery and adventure. The subject of friendship is central to the book and the characters are all very well drawn, from the two central protagonists, the likeable "everyboy" David and the more complex adolescent Adam, to the supporting roles of Squeak Wilson and Adam's eccentric relatives.
Finally, what makes this book particularly worthwhile is that the author does not shy away from themes integral to life from class differences to the meaning of poverty to mental illness to death, which makes the story as relevant today as when it was written.
At the heart of the book is a cracking good historical puzzle, sophisticated enough to keep adult brains ticking over. But the appeal of Pearce's writing for children is that she never condescends or patronises.
