From amazon.com:
The aristocratic Charles Bromley arrives at 221B Baker Street to beg SHERLOCK HOLMES for his help. Bromley believes that his wife is in danger, as she has refused an offer to sell the Moonstone, a fabulous diamond that has been in her family for generations but which is said to be cursed. When a jeweller is found murdered, it seems as if the Moonstone deserves its reputation. Then the diamond is stolen, and Holmes must try to unravel a mystery centuries in the making.

Journal Entry 2 by wingcestmoiwing at Hamilton, Ontario Canada on Thursday, October 5, 2023
This is meant to be a sort of sequel to Wilkie Collins The Moonstone although the end of that novel and the beginning of this one don't exactly line up. It takes place about 50 years after the original ends but starts with a different set of circumstances than the original ends on - I don't want to give either novel away. It will make sense if you read both of them.

This rehashing of Sherlock Holmes was fun. No Watson, but a cousin named Henry Vernier, a doctor - with a wife who is also a doctor - a bit of a scandal in those times!

Together they solve the mystery of the cursed and missing Moonstone.

I liked Holmes in this rendition; he's not quite as arrogant and supercilious as the original and Vernier makes a good narrator in place of Watson.
