The Mystery of Edwin Drood

by Charles Dickens - £7.99  Vintage (Vintage Classics) (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099518891 | ISBN 10: 0099518899

Featuring an introduction by Matthew Pearl.
 
The story of the fate of Edwin Drood is a mystery within a mystery. When young Edwin disappears after dinner on Christmas Eve and his watch and chain are later found in the nearby river, everyone suspects foul play. Could one of Edwin's acquaintances have murdered him - and, if so, what could their motive be? And how does this shocking event in a quiet cathedral town connect to the opium dens of London?
 
Tragically, the mystery is destined never to be truly solved, as Dickens died before he could finish this novel - all that is left are the clues that can be found in the completed chapters.

"Dickens's hypnotic storytelling and fantastic characterisation... even in its incomplete form, this remains a gripping and troubling masterpiece"
(Sunday Express)
