The Mystery of Edwin Drood

Charles Dickens (Author) David Paroissien (Editor)

Description

'Dickens's finest work in the genre of the detective story was his last' The Times

Edwin Drood is contracted to marry orphan Rosa when he comes of age, but when they find that duty has gradually replaced affection, they agree to break off the engagement. Shortly afterwards, in the middle of a storm on Christmas Eve, Edwin disappears. Beyond this there are further intrigues: the dark opium underworld of the sleepy cathedral town of Cloisterham, and the sinister double life of choir-master Jasper, whose drug-fuelled fantasy life belies his appearance. Dickens died before completing Edwin Drood, leaving generations of readers to try and solve its tantalizing mystery.

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by David Paroissien
