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. Download and start listening now!

    " 3.5 stars. A pretty good late-19th century adventure story with smuggling and hidden treasure. There are some unpleasant details--branding and death and so on--but no more so than other late 19th/early 20th century adventure stories. I see a lot of local libraries have it in children's, but I'm glad mine doesn't--it's not likely to appeal much to the modern child, and it does have some pretty tough moments. Not that kids shouldn't read it, but it's one of those books that's better discovered in the adult collection by children and adults. "
