This book generally considered the first detective novel in the English language. The Moonstone is a 19th-century British epistolary novel. The Moonstone of the title is a diamond. It gained its name from its association with the Hindu god of the moon. Originally set in the forehead of a sacred statue of the god at Somnath, and later at Benares, it was said to be protected by hereditary guardians on the orders of Vishnu, and to wax and wane in brilliance along with the light of the moon.
