About the Author

Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) was a seminal English novelist, playwright, and short story writer who has been hailed as a master of the mystery and suspense genres. Regarded as one of the pioneers of the detective novel, he gained widespread acclaim with his trailblazing works such as 'The Woman in White' and 'The Moonstone', which is often considered to be the first modern English detective novel. Born into a family of artists, Collins developed a storytelling prowess that deftly combined elements of gothic horror, legal drama, and psychological realism. His narratives frequently explored themes of identity, social justice, and the blurred lines between respectability and criminality, contributing to the evolution of the sensation novel in the Victorian era. Collins was also a close friend and collaborator of Charles Dickens, with whom he shared literary ideologies. 'The Haunted Hotel: A Mystery of Modern Venice' is another example of his work that exemplifies his characteristic blend of supernatural elements with a rational, investigative approach, offering readers an intriguing and atmospheric experience. Collins' literary style often involved the use of multiple narrators, complex plots, and reflections on the mores of Victorian society, which has kept his work enduringly popular and influential in the field of crime fiction.
