Description

The story 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 remains unsolved, as Dickens died before he could finish the novel. All that is left are the clues that can be found in the completed chapters.
