Jealousy, love, treachery, and murder weave through the sinister plot of this unfinished Dickens novel. The story revolves around the doomed betrothal of 2 orphans, Edwin Drood and Rosa Bud. Resenting the marriage that was arranged by their fathers, Edwin treats Rosa unkindly, which angers her admirer, young Neville Landless. Rosa is also admired by Edwin's unpleasant, hypocritical Uncle Jasper, who plots to feed the animosity between Edwin and Neville. The disagreements build as Rosa and Edwin's wedding day approaches, culminating in Edwin's unexplained disappearance. Has Edwin been murdered? Is Neville responsible? How is Jasper involved, and who is the mysterious Mr. Datchery? The novel breaks off without any indication of Dickens's planned solution. Bring your own conclusions to this fascinating mystery that has long been a favorite puzzle of literary historians.
