9780099541127: Moonfleet (Vintage Classics)

A thrilling Victorian adventure story of smuggling, cursed treasure, code-cracking, injustice, revenge, and friendship   Beginning as a mystery and an adventure story, this tale of smuggling is set among the cliffs, caves, and downs of Dorset. What will be the outcome of the conflict between smugglers and revenue men? How can the hero, John Trenchard, discover the secret of Colonel John Mohune's treasure? As the book progresses these two interwoven themes resolve themselves into a third and richer one, with the friendship and suffering of both John Trenchard and the craggy, taciturn Elzevir Block. Falkner's feeling for history and for the landscape of his Dorset setting combine with his gift for storytelling to turn this ripping yarn into a historical romance of moving intensity.

Summary: "John Meade Falkner's tale of smuggling, a cursed diamond, revenge, ghosts, a secret code, wrongful imprisonment and great sacrifice. It calls for comparison with The Three Musketeers, Treasure Island , Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth , H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines , Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World and Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan of the Apes . A novel of claustrophobic darkness, storm-wracked seas and wild romantic landscapes, it sweeps the reader irresistibly along, like the deadly undertow at Moonfleet Beach ".
