O knihe

The Moonstone is a magnificent yellow diamond, `large as a plover`s egg`, with a bloody history, which has been stolen from the home of Lady Verinder. An innocent man is accused of the crime. From this simple beginning Wilkie Collins creates a stunning, complex narrative of dark mystery, suspense and atmosphere. It is one of the cornerstones in the development of crime fiction. The poet and critic T.S. Eliot declared that it was `the first, the longest and the best of modern English detective novels`. But The Moonstone, which has fascinated readers since its first publication in 1868, is more than a `whodunnit`; like all Collins` works, it explores, dissects and exposes the society in which he lived. The richness of character and incident are engrossing, entertaining and enlightening. The Moonstone is one of the great Victorian novels.
