Publisher's Summary

When the Countess Narona meets Agnes Lockwood, the woman jilted by her husband-to-be, she feels a great sense of foreboding. After the marriage, she moves with her husband, Lord Montbarry, to Venice. As much as Agnes tries to forget the episode of her broken engagement, her fate and that of the Countess seem to be inextricably woven. Both are relentlessly drawn to the Palace Hotel in Venice for a final and dramatic encounter, in the room where more than past emotions resurface to haunt them.Loosely based on a case from the annals of French crime, the horror of this mystery comes through the invention of one of the classic Victorian "sensation" novelists, Wilkie Collins, who also wrote The Moonstone and The Woman in White.

The Haunted Hotel

Not Wilkie Collins' best but expertly narrated. The plot is rather flat and predictable with a rather lame and contrived ending which does not do justice to the interest generated in Agnes' future in the orientation. The character of Lady Montberry is a rather confusing one. The Moonstone and The Woman in White are far superior in terms of penmanship.

Confusing and rambling

Very hard to follow the plot. Very boring. Misleading title. The narrator had a pleasant voice, but the story made me fall asleep.
