      I adore Wilkie Collins. As a friend of the well-known Charles Dickens, I think he did was a bit overshadowed by him.This is a delightful tale of a woman of means who becomes the victim of the theft of a 500 pound note in her home. There are a number of possible suspects and she obtains help in persuing the perpetrator. She retains a young girl as her companion and as she is of much lower rank and may be looked on as the possible thief, she is sent away to her Aunt, Miss Pink, to live until the m [...]

      It's been "Wilkie Collins Discovery Week" for me. I read his Woman in White a few years ago, but it never occurred to me that I might enjoy so many of his other tales of Victorian mystery as well. Mr. Collins was a good friend of Charles Dickens -- and now I love them both.

      Short novel with great characters. The mystery and the plot are pretty simple. I enjoyed reading it. A really good illustration of how a woman can let herself get roped into things she does not want- even marriage to a rich and bullying man. Luckily, she escaped before it was too late! Yay! Society should take a lesson here as well and not serve as a hammer to slam a round individual into a square raw deal.

    5. Mary Kelly

      The mystery was way too simple but the romance element made up for the lack of suspense. I like the dog best of all, he is the only honest one in the story.

      This is a wonderful story, it tells the tale of a missing £500 note in a very light hearted way with a dash of romance thrown in as well. Collins has a marvelous way of diverting you from the truth with his writing while stating the facts outright so you aren't ever sure of what really happened to the money.A great book thats easy to read without leaving you brain dead!

    8. Jennifer

      Classic Wilkie Collins, this book comprises a mystery, a romance, and Collins' engaging style of writing. My only compaint is that it was very short and therefore the plot was not as complex as in many of his stories. I would have liked to have spent more time with the characters and to have gotten to know them better.

    9. Lucy

      Rather a silly novella without his usual page-turning magic. I didn't find any of the characters either likeable or credible, and the dog is a pain.

    10. T.

      The mystery was a bit too obvious but it was another interesting look at the British class system that was popular to write about in his time.

    11. Wendy Jensen

      Delightfully written but then you would expect no less from Wilke Collins. Well defined characters make this a fun yet quick read.

    12. Nagisa

      The suspect is quite obvious to me, and probably to most of the present-day readers whose judgment will not be hindered by prejudices about social class.
