Summary Considered the first true detective story Wilkie Collins' The Moonstone (1868) is a 19th-century British epistolary novel. Originally serialized in Charles Dickens' magazine All the Year Round, it introduced many hallmarks of detective fiction, including an English country house setting, bungling local policemen, and a large number of false suspects. In it, Rachel Verinder, a young English woman, inherits a large Indian diamond on her eighteenth birthday from her uncle who was stationed in India. The diamond itself has great religious significance as well as monetary value and becomes the focus of several determined efforts to acquire it. Filled with romance, suspense and a healthy dose of mystery, The Moonstone is a classic page-turner.
