Mystery of Edwin Drood

Drood is the final, unfinished novel by Dickens. The central mystery, the disappearance of Edwin Drood, plays out in a thinly disguised Rochester. This is gothic Rochester as you have never seen it before.

You can join the book club at any time by downloading the eBook, and joining our discussions on the Reading Drood blog
