Summary:

Called 'the first and greatest of English detective novels' by T. S. Eliot, Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone is a masterpiece of suspense.

A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for many years to reclaim their ancient talisman, looted from the holy city of Somnauth. When the Moonstone disappears, the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted.

Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrate the story in turn. The bemused butler, the love-stricken housemaid, the enigmatic detective Sergeant Cuff, the drug-addicted scientist-each speculate on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together.

    This is my favorite of all Wilkie Collins novels. I love the story, how it unfolds and the well developed characters. The reader did an exceptionally good job at delivering making the story all the more interesting.
