Summary
"A fabulous yellow diamond, an ancient talisman Hindu priests have waited for many years to reclaim, becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. When the Moonstone disappears, the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted. Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrates the story in turn, and each speculates on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together"--Container
