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.

Wilkie Collins was a man ahead of his time!

I have loved this book since I first read it many years ago and I love it just as much today! Collins is believed to be one of the first mystery writers and not only does he create a first rate mystery but he has developed one of the most beloved characters I have ever known in the form of Mr. Betteridge who embodies wisdom, humor and care as he hopes to immolate his favorite character, Robinson Curuso. The narration by B.J. Harrison was so perfect. The whole presentation is epic. I'd recommend it to anyone.
