Murder mystery by Wilkie Collins, set in London and Venice."
The Haunted Hotel by Wilkie Collins; dramatised by Rod Beacham.
Wilkie Collins' gothic horror tale is a powerful combination of ghost story and detective mystery. In 1860, the formidable Countess Narona marries a rich young aristocrat in London - but shortly after travelling to Venice her husband dies, apparently of natural causes, leaving the Countess a rich woman. Years later, guests in a Venetian hotel encounter the terrifying apparition of a murder victim seeking revenge.
