The Eustace Diamonds

Trollope’s plot revolves around the immensely valuable and spectacular necklace Lizzie Eustace acquires from the rich, ailing baronet whom she married for his money and quickly killed with her indifference. Entailed to her son and heir, she nevertheless attempts to pawn or sell the necklace, and only the dogged efforts of the Eustace family’s solicitor stand between her and success.

The Eustace Diamonds

A book from the Palliser Series

Introduced by P D James

ISBN 9781870587099

647 pages Hardback

Published 1992


Totally unscrupulous, Lizzie is at the same time casting around to entrap another husband to keep her in the style to which so rapidly she has become accustomed. Indeed, she pursues several possibilities simultaneously , scattering promises like confetti with a flash of her eyes ‘in which she herself thought the lustre of her beauty lay.’ It is a lucky reader who comes fresh to this compelling tour-de-force.
