View Full Version : Why did Rudge kill Haredale's brother?

I just finished Barnaby Rudge, but missed any explanation of why Barnaby's father killed Reuben Haredale, which I thought would come in the wrap up at the end. Is there a reason given, once we find out it was Rudge and not the gardener who did it?

I listened to the audiobook which I have since returned to the library, so I can't go back and review the pages. But I thought the murder involved stealing some money or property? I may be wrong on that, but that's my recollection.
