Publisher Description

Mad Monkton is a bizarre ghost story. It is said that a strain of hereditary madness blights the Monkton family, heirs to the huge domain of Wincot Abbey. Rumors in the neighborhood are that Alfred, the youngest scion, has inherited this insanity. His odd behavior certainly points that way. Alfred is engaged to his childhood sweetheart, Ada Elmslie. But at the very moment when various obstacles to the match are overcome, Alfred suddenly departs for Italy on what appears to be a wild goose chase, seeking the corpse of his disreputable uncle, who is believed to have been killed in a duel. But what could have driven Alfred to do this? And why does he so desperately want to find his late uncle’s remains? The mystery is bizarre and gruesome … and the tale takes on one weird twist after another.

About the Author

Wilkie Collins (1824–1889) studied law and was admitted to the bar but never practiced. Instead, he devoted his time to writing and is best known for his novels The Woman in White, No Name, Armadale, and The Moonstone, which has been called the finest detective story ever written. A number of his works were collaborations with his close friend, Charles Dickens. The Woman in White so gripped the imagination of the world that Wilkie Collins had his own tombstone inscribed: “Author of The Woman in White.”
