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.
From the Publisher:
A thrilling adventure story of smuggling, cursed treasure, code-cracking, injustice, revenge and friendship.

Orphaned John Trenchard grows up in the vollage of Moonfleet with his aunt, entranced by the local legend of the ghostly Blackbeard, who rises each winter night to search for his lost diamond. While conducting his own hunt for the treasure, John is trapped in the church crypt and discovers the true secret of the village: smuggling. Taken under the wing of the gruff innkeeper and chief smuggler, Elzevir Block, John begins a dangerous adventure which will see him in a hair-raising chase along a precarious cliff path and deciphering a hidden code in an ancient castle. Moonfleet is a thrilling story of revenge and betrayal, of loyalty and great sacrifice, but is above all a story about friendship.
