Based on a 1858 play called "Red Vial", Collinsâ "Jezebelâs Daughter" is a tale of mystery, betrayal, and misguided trust revolving around Mrs. Fontaine, a nefarious widow who employs her late husbandâs poisons and remedies to manipulate those around her. A thrilling and engaging novel with obvious parallels to modern detective fiction, this book is recommended for fans of such literature, and it constitutes a must-have for collectors of Collinsâ work. Many antiquarian books like this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing "Jezebelâs Daughter" now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
