I'm on a Wilkie Collins jag. Not as grand as his Big Two, The Moonstone and The Woman in White, this shorter effort is notable as a combination mystery story, ghost story and psychological thriller. Beginning in London, the story shifts to the haunting streets and canals of Venice where the Countess Narona, who married a man betrothed to another, foresees meeting her punishment and doom for past evils when she comes face to face with the woman who was wronged.
