Wilkie Collins

Book Overview: 

Lady Lydiard has an uncomfortable bit of business to settle, and intends to do so with a five hundred pound note.

But when everything settles down again, the note is missing. Who took it?

Book Excerpt: 

FOR a quarter of an hour the drawing-room remained empty. At the end of that time the council in the boudoir broke up. Lady Lydiard led the way back into the drawing-room, followed by Hardyman, Isabel being left to look after the dog. Before the door closed behind him, Hardyman turned round to reiterate his last medical directions—or, in plainer words, to take a last look at Isabel.

Lungi dall'essere uno dei migliori Collins, l'autore dà voce ad alcuni personaggi estremamente divertenti, atti ad interazioni che vanno a compensare sia la prevedibilità "mistery" sia la semplicità del complotto romantico. Tuttavia con Collins raramente scendo sotto le 4 stelline, ogni sua lettura
