Green cloth on boards. Hinges cracked and glued. Previous owner's name. Of all the Wilkie Collins titles I have recently listed, this one is the most tempting to be read. The storyteller allows himself to be involved in various dangerous events as a result of accompanying Romayne, the self-centered "hero" of the story, to France as companion to Romayne's aging aunt, who is afraid to cross the Channel. And that's only the beginning ! I suggest you check out internet reviews, and then buy this book ! If you like it you might want to buy the others I have listed. 448 pp. View more info
