The plot revolves around a theft at a Yorkshire state and the story moves between Yorkshire and London as a variety of characters come under suspicion and an equal variety of people either attempt or think they have identified the guilty party. There is enough intrigue in this novel to satisfy any fan of mystery writing and enough quality of writing and depth to satisfy any lover of great literature.
Wilkie Collins may now be best remembered as the author of THE WOMAN In WHITE but The Moonstone is reputed to be his masterpiece so I chose to start with this and truly enjoyed reading it.
Yesterday in Barnes & Noble I found a nice, readable copy in a B&N imprint. I am throwing away the Amazon book. If on-demand is part of the book description, I don't see it. The book in my memory gets five stars. The cheap copy I ordered gets one star. Beware of the book cover showing a blonde woman at a dressing table - very disappointing.
