9780099518891: The Mystery Of Edwin Drood (Vintage Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MATTHEW PEARL

The story of the fate of Edwin Drood is a mystery within a mystery. When young Edwin disappears after dinner on Christmas Eve and his watch and chain are later found in the nearby river, everyone suspects foul play. Could one of Edwin's acquaintances have murdered him - and, if so, what could their motive be? And how does this shocking event in a quiet cathedral town connect to the opium dens of London? Tragically, the mystery is destined never to be truly solved, as Dickens died before he could finish this novel - all that is left are the clues that can be found in the completed chapters.

Review:

"The influence of Charles Dickens on the development and achievements of detective fiction is unchallengeable" ( The Times)

"In The Mystery of Edwin Drood Dickens brooded on crime, opium and the darkness of the soul" ( Sunday Herald)

"Dickens's finest work in the genre of the detective story was his last ... Had Dickens lived to complete it, The Mystery of Edwin Drood would probably have challenged the supremacy of Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone..." ( The Times)

Book Description:

'Dickens's hypnotic storytelling and fantastic characterisation...even in its incomplete form, this remains a gripping and troubling masterpiece' Sunday Express
