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
