The Haunted Hotel is a mystery novel by Wilkie Collins, first published in 1878.
Wilkie Collins's ghost story was set in 1860 and published in book form with 'My Lady's Money'. The Haunted Hotel was dedicated to his friends Mr and Mrs Sebastian Schlesinger. Apart from supernatural elements, the story contains detective procedures and an insurance fraud relying on substituted identity that anticipates the later Blind Love (1890). The story The Haunted Hotel is unusually horrific for Wilkie Collins...
The Haunted Hotel by Wilkie Collins: Lord Montbarry breaks off his engagement to Agnes Lockwood to marry the Countess Narona. The couple end a continental tour in Venice where they live reclusively in a large, decaying palace. They are accompanied by Baron Rivar, brother of the Countess, and by Ferrari, their courier.
Agnes learns from Montbarry's brother, Henry Westwick, that Mountbarry, whose life was insured for £10,000 in favour of his wife, has died of bronchitis. The courier has disappeared without trace although Ferrari's wife receives an anonymous note containing £1,000. The insurance companies carefully investigate but find no evidence that Mountbarry died other than by natural causes. (Summary by wilkie-collins.info/books_haunted_hotel)
