Upon inheriting the Moonstone, a huge and priceless diamond, Rachel Verinder's delight turns to dismay when the gem suddenly disappears. But this is no ordinary theft. Sergeant Cuff of Scotland Yard is called in and immediately suspects an intricate plot. However, not even his powers of detection can penetrate fully the mysteries surrounding the diamond. And as we listen to each character’s version of the events, layer upon layer of drama and suspense build to the final and astonishing denouement of this magnificent, classic English detective novel.

Equally as enjoyable as Woman in White. Great story, language delightful, narration perfect. Wonderful to listen to when wanting to relax.
"Slow to start but gets gripping"
I found the first few dozen chapters slow-moving; I may well have skim-read a written text, but the story did draw me in nevertheless so it is worth persevering and the ending is perfect.
Better narrator for second part of story.
There sadly comes a time in every actors life when age adversely affects their performance. The voice becomes thin, weedy and gurgled. Diction goes from precise to floppy and in this case a terrible sense of over wetness of the mouth. I don't know if the story or other narrators were any good as I had to stop listening.
Excellent, un-putdownable tale with fantastic performances from all readers, apart from the introduction.
Collins is brilliant. Would highly recommend.
