The stone of the title is an enormous yellow diamond plundered from an Indian shrine after the Siege of Seringapatam. Given to Miss Verinder on her eighteenth birthday, it mysteriously disappears that very night. Suspicion falls on three Indian jugglers who have been seen in the neighborhood. Miss Verinder was bequeathed the diamond by a ne'er-do-well uncle who looted the jewel from the statue of the Hindu Moon God during the siege of Seringapatam - since which, Hindu priests have been bound and determined to recover the diamond and return it to its rightful place in the forehead of the statue. But all is not as it seems; dark secrets lurk behind respectable façades, and the trail of clues leads Sergeant Cluff in quite a different direction. The Moonstone is considered the first detective story in the English language, and this audio includes a PDF of the text!
