Overview

The Dead Secret (Illustrated) by Wilkie Collins

“The Dead Secret is Collins' last work before he struck gold with The Woman in White, and it marks a considerable step forward from the novels which preceded it. On her deathbed, Mrs Treverton, the wife of the wealthy Captain Treverton, dictates a confession to her maid, Sarah Leeson, to pass to her husband and makes her swear that she will never destroy the letter or let it leave Porthgenna Tower. Leeson, however, hides the letter and flees, and Captain Treverton dies without ever discovering the secret. However, his daughter Rosamund discovers there is a secret locked up in the mysterious Myrtle Room, and sets her mind to discover what it is.”

Another work of art by Wilkie Collins. The more I read of his work the less I understand how unknown he and most of his works are. There is a romantic sensativity in all of his work, usually combined perfectly with suspense and mystery. You can't go wrong with his work, I highly recomend this and all of Collins' books.

Another great by the master Wilkie. Intriguing plot that could easily fit with contemporary times. Great characters, lots of suspense and a real page-turner. My 2nd favorite Wilkie book after The Moonstone. Thought this was better than The Woman in White. A must for any mystery, Victorian, or Wilkie fan.

I found myself skipping through the pages to pick up where there was actual dialog. This author spends ALOT of words on meandering unimportant things. Interesting story but in gets lost in the blah blah blah
