The Mystery of Edwin DroodDownloadable Audiobook - 2006
Who killed Edwin Drood? Was it his opium-addict uncle, John Jasper, or the quarrelsome Neville Landless? Or was Drood actually dead? Taking us from the calm cathedral town of Cloisterharn to London's filthy opium dens, Dickens creates a haunting atmosphere and slowly unravels the threads of revelations, twisted though they may be. It was not surprising that Charles Dickens, a close friend of Wilkie Collins, wrote a mystery novel. Further, it is not surprising that his contribution to the genre is considered an outstanding work. Longfellow went so far as to say of it, "certainly one of the most beautiful of his works, if not the most beautiful of all."
