The Hollow House is a nicely fluffy historical mystery with an almost vaudevillian plot. There is our heroine, running away from her past, living under an assumed name, working as a personal companion. There is her employer - an old woman grown rich through silver mining, lonely, cranky, headstrong. And then there are the murders.

A book with almost mustache-twirling villains, evil, and derring do I found this eminently entertaining. The almost gothic feel of the book is enhanced by its primary (and by primary I mean 99.9% of the book takes place there) location - the house. Written in the funnest tradition of historical mystery this will entertain you.
