About This Item

Collins, Wilkie (THE MOONSTONE 1944, Books, Inc. Midnite Mystery / no DJ) First Edition Thus. Used. Not an exlib. Good/ No dj. Summary: " The moonstone in the title refers to a brilliant but flawed gem seized by a British officer in India. He brought it back to England as a family heirloom - with a supposed curse placed upon it. The officer bequeathed the stone to his niece, Rachel Verinder, for her to inherit when she turns 18. The night of her 18th birthday, the Moonstone goes missing. Everyone connected with Rachel at her family estate in Yorkshire is under suspicion. It is up to the London detective, Sergeant Cuff, to solve the crime."

Synopsis

I address these lines - written in India - to my relatives in England.

Reviews

On Dec 6 2011, Bragi said:
One of the best detective novels I have ever read. This book is a precursor to all detective classics in English. The style of writing is unique, the way the narration begins and accounts of each and every character that are involved in the plot, is one of the first of its kind. This is a must read book for all those who are interested in detective novels.
