Description

Penguin Classics presents Wilkie Collins The Moonstone, adapted for audio and available as a digital download as part of the Penguin English Library series.

Read by Michael Pennington and Terence Hard. Here was our quiet English house suddenly invaded by a devilish Indian Diamond - bringing after it a conspiracy of living rogues, set loose on us by the vengeance of a dead man When Rachel Verinders birthday present - the Moonstone, a large Indian diamond - is stolen at her party, suspicion and the diamonds mysterious curse seem set to ruin everyone and everything she loves.

Only Sergeant Cuffs famous detective skills offer any hope of peace and a future for them all. The intricate plot and modern technique of multiple narrators made Wilkie Collins 1868 work a huge success in the Victorian sensation genre.

With a reconstruction of the crime, red herrings and a locked-room puzzle, The Moonstone was also a major precursor of the modern mystery novel. Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives.

Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
