A House To Let (Hesperus Classics)

Compiled by Charles Dickens, and including chapters by Elizabeth Gaskell and Wilkie Collins, "A House to Let" is a composite tale of mystery and intrigue set amid the dark streets of Victorian London. Advised by her doctor to have a change of scenery, the elderly Sophonisba takes up lodgings in London. Immediately intrigued by a nearby house to let, she charges her two warring attendants, Trottle and Jarber, to unearth the secret behind its seeming desertedness. Rivals to the end, they each seek to outdo the other to satisfy their mistress curiosity; however, it is only after repeated false startsand by way of elaborate tales of men lost at sea, circus performers, and forged death certificatesthat they happen upon the truth. Charles Dickens is one of England s most important literary figures. His works enjoyed enormous success in his day and are still among the most popular and widely read classics of all time."
