(P/B) THE MOONSTONE
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0039

When Rachel Verinder's legacy of a priceless Indian diamond is stolen, all the evidence indicates that it is her beloved, Franklin Blake, who is guilty. Around this central axis of crime and thwarted love, Collins constructs an ingenious plot of teasing twists and surprises, and an elaborate multi-voiced narrative that sustains the tension all the way to its stunning ending. Described by T.S. Eliot as "the first, the longest and the best of modern English detective novels", Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone is an important precursor of the mo...

Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3404

An innovative novel featuring an astonishingly wicked female villain, Wilkie Collins' "Armadale" was regarded by T.S. Eliot as 'the best of [his] romances'.

(P/B) BASIL
Εκδότης: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3145-1655

In Basil's secret and unconsummated marriage to the linen-draper's sexually precocious daughter, and the shocking betrayal, insanity, and death that follow, Collins reveals the bustling, commercial London of the nineteenth century wreaking its vengeance on a still powerful aristocratic world.

Intrigue, investigations, thievery, drugs and murder all make an appearance in Collins's classic who-done-it, The Moonstone.

(P/B) MAN AND WIFE
Εκδότης: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3145-1653

"This time the fiction is founded upon facts" stated Wilkie Collins in his Preface to Man and Wife (1870). Many Victorian writers responded to contemporary debates on the rights and the legal status of women, and here Collins questions the deeply inequitable marriage laws of his day. Man and Wife examines the plight of a woman who, promised marriage by one man, comes to believe that she may inadvertently have gone through a form of marriage with his friend, as recognized by the archaic laws of Scotland and Ireland. From this starting-point...

(H/B) THE MOONSTONE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0203

The Moonstone is a stunning yellow diamond the size of a bird's egg that glows like the harvest moon and harbors a flaw in its brilliant depths. Inherited by the beautiful young Englishwoman Rachel Verinder, it is also a sacred talisman to the Hindu priests who hope to bring it back to their holy city in India, from which it was looted long ago. The diamond's disappearance sets in motion an intricately plotted mystery. Wilkie Collins gives the reader all the necessary pieces to the puzzle, but they are so cleverly disguised that his sur...

(P/B) MISS OR MRS? - THE HAUNTED HOTEL - THE GUILTY RIVER
Εκδότης: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3145-1656

Collins's ability to construct a gripping situation and to create an atmosphere of mystery and menace is fully evident in the three novellas reprinted here. All proceed through a series of dramatic scenes to a climax that in one case at least is literally explosive. The fast-paced Miss or Mrs? (1871) opens on a yacht, features a remarkably unconventional heroine, and entails murder attempts, blackmail, clandestine marriage and commercial fraud. Dramatic and psychologically absorbing, the action of The Haunted Hotel (1878) takes place in an...
