  • "The Moonstone is an ancient Indian diamond which brings disaster to everyone who owns it. Rachel Verinder's uncle gives her the diamond as a birthday present, but that same night it is stolen... The Moonstone is now seen as the first, and one of the best, English detective novels."

No one is above suspicion as the indefatigable Sergeant Cuff pieces together a series of events as mystifying as an opium dream and as deceptive as the nearby Shivering Sand. T. S. Eliot praised The Moonstone as 'the first'and the best of modern English detective novels.' To this day, it draws the reader into its world of danger, suspense, and societal anxiety. Collins unmasks a restrictive society marked by sexual and imperial domination, as well as the often-ignored underside of Victorian life. In his hands, facts, identities, and memory are only transient. This spellbinding mystery, narrated in turn by characters highborn and lowborn, is a fascinating excursion into the shadows that lie just beyond the ordered landscape of English society. With an Introduction by Alev Lytle Croutier and an Afterword by Lillian Nayder."@en

Unaware of the importance of the diamond in Hindu religion, Rachel wears her new prize on her gown at her birthday celebration.

  • "The novel that T. S. Eliot called “the first, the longest, and the best of the modern English detective novels” Guarded by three Brahmin priests, the Moonstone is a religious relic, the centerpiece in a sacred statue of the Hindu god of the moon. It is also a giant yellow diamond of enormous value, and its temptation is irresistible to the corrupt John Herncastle, a colonel in the British Army in India. After murdering the three guardian priests and bringing the diamond back to England with him, Herncastle bequeaths it to his niece, Rachel, knowing full well that danger will follow. True to its enigmatic nature, the Moonstone disappears from Rachel’s room on the night of her eighteenth birthday, igniting a mystery so intricate and thrilling it has set the standard for every crime novel of the past one hundred fifty years. Widely recognized, alongside the stories of Edgar Allan Poe, as establishing many of the most enduring conventions of detective fiction, The Moonstone is Wilkie Collins’s masterwork and one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century."@en
