Publisher's Summary

This is heralded as the very first mystery novel. Collins, in his great work, created the guidelines for the genre as we know it today: a fabulous diamond stolen, everyone in the house is suspected, three mysterious Indians sworn to protect the jewel at all costs, the upstairs/downstairs tension from the servants, and a brilliant detective who is eccentrically fond of roses.

Outstanding Performance

I thoroughly enjoyed BJ Harrison's performance of this book. His characterizations are so clear and masterful that he adds dimension to an already compelling work.

The Moonstone is a well-crafted, often funny, engaging book. It's been dubbed the first mystery novel, but it's more than that. In this production, the many characters come to life in a remarkably nuanced performance.
