Blurb: 
Edwin Drood is contracted to marry the orphaned Rosa, but they break the engagement off -- and soon afterwards Edwin disappears. Is it murder? And is his jealous uncle -- a sinister choirmaster with a double life and designs on Rosa -- the killer? Dickens died before completing the story, leaving the mystery unsolved and encouraging successive generations of readers to turn detective. In addition to its tantalizing crime, the novel also offers a characteristically Dickensian mix of the fantastical world of the imagination and a vibrantly journalistic depiction of gritty reality.
