The Moonstone
Add To Bookshelf
The Moonstone
by Wilkie Collins
A dazzling gem is stolen known as "The Moonstone"from the forehead of a Hindu idol only to resurfaces at a birthday party in an English country home-with an enigmatic trio of watchful Brahmins hot on its trail. Rich with superstitions, suspicion, humor, and romance, this 1868 mystery draws readers into a compelling tale where twists and turns range from sleepwalking to experimentation with opium.

Described by T.S. Eliot as a "master of plot and situation," Collins possessed gifts of characterization that rivaled those of his close friend, Charles Dickens. The Moonstone exhibits these skills with suspenseful and dramatic effects, as the narrative passes from one colorful character to the next. The novel is particularly distinguished by the appearance of Sergeant Cuff, a prototype of the English detective hero and the harbinger of a popular tradition of sleuths in books.
