Reviews

  • Alchemy, premonitions, disappearances, madness, supernatural sightings and even a whiff of incest combine...a pleasingly nasty affair

    The Times
  • An atmospheric and ghostly evocation of a wintry Venice in the 1800s

    Guardian
  • Wilkie Collins is the finest practitioner of the novel of sensation... he took the elements gothic fiction relied upon - secret lives, lovers, villainy - and moved them into the suburbs... here the genre fused with the already established crime novel and took it in a new direction, more familiar and more frightening

    Daily Telegraph
  • Wilkie Collins [drew] on the conventions of blood and thunder melodrama but subtly let the reader know he's having fun with the game

    Guardian
