  • "The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final, uncompleted novel by Charles Dickens. John Jasper is a choirmaster who is in love with one of his pupils, Rosa Bud.

  • "Handsome young Edwin Drood disappears one stormy night and the ensuing investigation turns into a battle between good and evil."
  • "Dicken's last novel is a mystery built around a presumed crime, the murder of a nephew by his uncle. He died before completing the story, leaving the mystery unsolved and encouraging successive generations of readers to turn detective."
  • "Central to the plot is John Jasper: in public he is a man of integrity and benevolence; in private he is an opium addict. And while seeming to smile on the engagement of his nephew, Edwin Drood, he is, in fact, consumed by jealousy, driven to terrify the boy's fiancee and to plot the murder of Edwin himself. As in many of Dickens's greatest novels, the gulf between appearance and reality drives the action. Set in the seemingly innocuous cathedral town of Cloisterham, the story rapidly darkens with a sense of impending evil. Charles Dickens's final, unfinished novel is in many ways his most intriguing. A highly atmospheric tale of murder, The Mystery of Edwin Drood foreshadows both the detective stories of Conan Doyle and the nightmarish novels of Kafka. Though The Mystery of Edwin Drood is one of its author's darkest books, it also bustles with a vast roster of memorable'and delightfully named'minor characters: Mrs. Billikins, the landlady; the foolish Mr. Sapsea; the domineering philanthropist, Mr. Honeythunder; and the mysterious Datchery. Several attempts have been made over the years to complete the novel and solve the mystery, but even in its unfinished state it is a gripping and haunting masterpiece.

  • "Sinister John Jasper foments a quarrel between his nephew, Edwin, and Neville, an admirer of Rosa, John's betrothed."@en
  • "Spec. Coll."
  • "This novel is a mystery story, a background of opium dens, moldering monastic crypts."@en
  • "This book, Charles Dickens' final novel, was never completed, leaving the reader to wonder at the final fate of the characters. Edwin Drood's uncle, a choirmaster named John Jasper, falls in love with his pupil, who happens to be Drood's fiance, Rosa Bud, who is also fancied by Neville Landless, a man from Ceylon (now better known as Sri Lanka). Amid these turbulent relationships Drood mysteriously vanishes."
  • "This tale of murder and mystery is set among the tombs and gargoyles of Cloisterham, based on Rochester."@en
  • "The betrothal of Edwin and Rosa by their fathers when they were still young, leads to unhappiness, jealousy and violent quarrels."
  • "Edwin Drood is contracted to marry Orphan Rosa, but they break the engagement off and soon afterwards Edwin disappears. Is it murder? And is his jealous uncle, a sinister choirmaster with a double life and designs on Rosa, the killer? Dickens died before completing the story, leaving the mystery unsolved and encouraging successive generations of readers to turn detective. In addition to its tantalizing crime, the novel also offers a characteristically Dickensian mix of the fantastical world of the imagination and a vibrantly journalistic depiction of gritty reality."@en
  • "Moving from a sedate cathedral town to London's sordid opium dens, the mystery of who killed the missing Edwin Drood, or if he was actually killed at all, is finally resolved."@en
  • "Edwin Drood and Rosa Budd are engaged to be married, as their parents have desired. But unbeknownst to Drood, his youthful uncle, Jasper, is deeply in love with Rosa -- so much so, in fact, that his despair has turned him into a secret opium addict. Neville Landless is also in love with Rosa, and Jasper helps feed his jealousy of Drood. Then one day Drood vanishes. Because of Jasper's assertions, Landless is held and questioned for Drood's murder but no body is found. Meanwhile, Landless' sister Helena also disappears and not long after a stranger named Datchery shows up and begins asking questions about Drood's disappearance. Suspicion seems to be following Jasper when Dickens' story stops."@en
  • "Introduces an array of characters, from the sinister to the comic, and moves to a haunting climax in an atmospheric murder mystery that features the seemingly benevolent John Jasper, a secret opium addict, and his relationship with his newly engaged nephew, Edwin Drood."

  • "The Mystery of Edwin Drood was left unsolved when Charles Dickens died the day after completing the sixth of twelve planned serial installments. Orphans Edwin Drood and Rosa Bud, who had been betrothed by their parents to marry when Edwin turned twenty-one, mutually agree to break the engagement. Edwin mysteriously disappears, and the story ends before we know his fate.--back cover."
  • "When young Edwin Drood mysteriously disappears from the quiet cathedral town of Cloisterham, foul play seems certain. The prime suspect is John Jasper, Edwin's uncle, who frequents the dark opium underworld and conceals a secret passion beneath his church choir respectability. Paul Scofield captures the haunting, occasionally humorous atmosphere and the many colorful characters in this unusual crime novel. Dickens' entertaining story is even more of a mystery than he intended, for he died before the work was completed."@en

  • "The Mystery of Edwin Drood is one of the most celebrated books by the Victorian novelist Charles Dickens. It is basically a story of love, jealousy and murder with a detective tone. The beautiful orphan Rosa Bud is engaged to Edwin Drood, yet she is also secretly loved by her music teacher John Jasper, an opium addict who happens to be Edwin's uncle. While Rosa finds Jasper completely unsuitable for her and hates the way he treats her, Jasper informs her that he is foolishly enthralled by her and that he is ready to do anything to realize his dream. Furthermore, another young man named Neville Landless sees Rosa and falls in love with her too. Many events follow as Rosa's lovers go through different quarrels. One morning, the town learns about the mysterious murder of Edwin Drood and Neville Landless is suspected of the crime. The real murderer remains unknown to the readers, however, since Charles Dickens died before writing a conclusion to the book. Numerous attempts were made after Dickens's death to complete the story and different theories were developed to confirm that the true murderer is none but John Jasper."@en
