Set in the heart of the Victorian era, The Moonstone is a tale of intrigue, theft, and the quest for a diamond of enormous value and beauty. Stolen from the Indian Sultan during the siege of Seringapatam, the gem carries a terrible curse, causing misfortune to anyone who possesses it. The diamond is bequeathed to the young Lady Verinder on her 18th birthday, but on the same night, it is stolen. Three suspicious-looking Indians had been seen in the neighbourhood, and so the best detective in Britain — Sergeant Cuff — is called to investigate.
