The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final novel by Charles Dickens, unfinished at the time of his death.
Written in 1890, the story is a murder mystery in which Edwin Drood is supposedly murdered. The novel investigates the characters in a distinctly Dickensian manner from the suspicious and tormented Jasper to the Reverend Crisparkle to Princess Puffer, the enigmatic Datchery and finally the gravedigger and his obnoxious but perceptive boy assistant. But who is the murderer? We will never know....
Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced. His innate comic genius and shrewd depictions of Victorian life - along with his memorable characters - have made him beloved by readers the world over.
