The Moonstone, Paperback / softback Book

The Moonstone Paperback / softback

Part of the Essential Gothic, SF & Dark Fantasy series

Paperback / softback

Description

A thrilling tale of mystery and crime from a master storyteller.

A pacy tale from the original master of detective fiction Wilkie Collins.

Transported from the temples of India to atmospheric Victorian England, the scene is set for a tale which twists between death, drugs, mystery and, most of all, misdirection.

Rachel inherits the moonstone from her uncle on her 18th birthday, a cursed diamond of sacred importance stolen from India.

When the stone goes missing, Sergeant Cuff is faced with a myriad of possible culprits, from mysterious Indian jugglers who may not be all they seem, to a very oddly acting maidservant.

Told from the viewpoints of various vivid characters, Collins spins a tale of intrigue with many a wrong-turn as the moonstone leaves a path of destruction in its wake. FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies.

Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic.

Each book features a brand new biography and glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.
