Publisher's Summary

Here's a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Falkner's gripping tale of mystery and high adventure in a Dorset smuggling villlage.

When 15-year-old John Trenchard discovers a secret passage into the vault of the powerful Mohune family, his peaceful life in the Dorset village of Moonfleet is at an end.

It is said that Captain Mohune, the notorious Blackbeard, haunts the place with wild and bloodcurdling cries, forever seeking his hidden treasure. As John sets off in a search of that treasure, a fabled diamond, he becomes caught up in the dangerous coastal smuggling runs and is forced to flee the country in the company of Elizevir Block, the man who is to become like a father to him.

From echoing vaults and stormy seas to dank dungeons and deep wells, John's search for hidden treasure is thrillingly evoked in this fully dramatised classic adventure.

Deeply Dorset

I am thrilled to hear the proper Dorset accents here! It really makes this book as I ha e come across so many ready with ordinary English accents and it does not suit this deeply Dorset tale remotely. I searched for a reading specifically with Dorset accent and am really happy with this!!
