Summary "A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of beautiful young heiress Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for centuries to reclaim their ancient talisman, looted from the holy city of Somnauth. When the Moonstone disappears from Rachel's bedroom the case looks simple, but in the world of Wilkie Collins, no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted."--P. [4] of cover.
