Publisher's Synopsis

Carlos Hullingham is a handsome devil: physically perfect but morally bankrupt. He is society's darling, 'but behind the sensuous charm of exterior there lurks the spirit of a fiend, ruthless in its cruelty and malice.' His first wife, Adelaide Hullingham, is dead... done to death... and now his second wife is proving troublesome. Originally published in 1897, 'The Master of Hullingham Manor' is a tale of wickedness, murder and revenge. With a cruel aristocrat, an imprisoned wife, a devious asylum owner, a fair bit of adultery, a vaulted room and a 'Phantom Recital' to boot, it is everything you'd expect from a 'shilling shocker'.

In the introductory essay to this new edition, Gina R. Collia reveals the true identity of Bernard Wentworth and paints a full and vivid picture of the authoress's extremely troubled life.
