The Haunted Hotel by Wilkie Collins

About the book

Is there no explanation of the mystery of The Haunted Hotel? Is The Haunted Hotel the tale of a haunting — or the tale of a crime? The ghost of Lord Montberry haunts the Palace Hotel in Venice — or does it? Montberry’s beautiful-yet-terrifying wife, the Countess Narona, and her erstwhile brother are the center of the terror that fills the Palace Hotel. Are their malefactions at the root of the haunting — or is there something darker, something much more unknowable at work?

Reviewed by Titchfield Abbey Reading Group:

A much enjoyed mystery novel. It had touches of a gothic novel. It was well-written and the plot was surprising. The characters were not always well developed but overall it was difficult to put down.

Star rating: ***
