Example text

When the lights go back on again, Miss Blacklock is found slightly wounded and the intruder is lying dead in the room. Detective Inspector Craddock, investigating the murder, discovers that most of the people gathered at Little Paddocks that evening have secrets to hide but he is powerless to prevent further killings in the village. Only Jane Marple, staying with the daughter of an old friend, wife of Chipping Cleghorn’s vicar, is able eventually to reveal the truth behind the murder that was so brazenly announced before it happened.

Vivid and beautiful descriptive passages of the region’s flora and fauna contrast strongly with sudden descents into mind-boggling violence, revealing how the sensual and idyllic setting of Louisiana is also an arena seething in brooding, primeval malevolence. The novel opens with Robicheaux indulging in his favourite pastime of fishing and, while testing his rod in a backwoods bayou, he discovers a body in the water. The corpse is that of a prostitute and addict, and repeated warnings from both sides of the law to let this seemingly unimportant death be quietly filed away convince him that he is stumbled on to something nasty.

Mysterious Hindus, exotic visitors to the Yorkshire countryside, are glimpsed in the neighbourhood; servants fall under suspicion as Cuff pursues his investigation into the theft; Franklin Blake falls under the dangerous spell of opium; and a pious hypocrite named Godfrey Ablewhite plots and schemes in the background. Eventually the truth emerges and the Moonstone returns to its rightful owners. Wilkie Collins was a close friend of Dickens and master of what became known as ‘sensation fiction’, a school of Victorian fiction which came to the fore in the 1860s and which often took murder, mystery and crime as its subjects.
