The Moonstone

Author(s): Wilkie Collins

Location(s): Yorkshire

Genre(s): Crime

Era(s): Mid 1800s



The Moonstone, a priceless Indian diamond which has been brought to England as spoils of war, is given to Rachel Verrinder on her 18th birthday. That very night the stone is stolen. Suspicion then falls on a hunchbacked housemaid, on Rachel’s cousin Franklin Blake, on a troupe of mysterious Indian jugglers, and on Rachel herself.
The phlegmatic Sergeant Cuff is called in and with the help of Betteredge, the Robinson Crusoe-reading loquacious steward, the mystery of the missing stone is ingeniously solved. (from the back cover)
