Predating Edgar Allen Poe's remarkably similar story The Cask of Amontillado by more than a decade, Honore de Balzac's chilling tale La Grande Breteche centers on a mysterious manor that sits abandoned in a town in central France. When a physician becomes curious about the estate and begins to question locals about it, he gradually unfurls a horrifying secret.
