Publisher's Summary

Upon inheriting the Moonstone, a huge and priceless diamond, Rachel Verinder's delight turns to dismay when the gem suddenly disappears. But this is no ordinary theft. Sergeant Cuff of Scotland Yard is called in and immediately suspects an intricate plot. However, not even his powers of detection can penetrate fully the mysteries surrounding the diamond. And as we listen to each character’s version of the events, layer upon layer of drama and suspense build to the final and astonishing denouement of this magnificent, classic English detective novel.

Excellent and thrilling novel. Gripping from first to last.

Extremely well narrated throughout with one very very minor error (in my opinion). Betteridge's accent was not noticeably a regional accent which makes sense given his circumstances. However, when it comes to his daughter Penelope her accent, as quoted by 2 of the narrators, is markedly Yorkshire which does not make sense! As I say a very minor objection as her words are only spoken a couple of times. Apologies for being pedantic!

Funny, intriguing, poignant

The story is absorbing, but the real joys here are wonderfully drawn characters of the different narrators - especially the obnoxious and un-self aware hypocrite Miss Clack, and the lovable and loyal Betteridge.

Excellently read.
