‘Who, in the name of wonder, had taken the Moonstone out of Miss Rachel's drawer?’ Who took it? And where is it now? A celebrated Indian yellow diamond is first stolen from India, then vanishes from a Yorkshire country house. The Moonstone tells of a mystery that for page after page becomes more, not less inexplicable.
