That poisoned dagger was intended for Duke Albert, said the Count, in case I could not force him to drink of the cup which I had prepared for him.Infernal villain! exclaimed Grimoald, who had heard his speech; I would this minute kill thee, and banish thy vile soul from the earth which thou emcumberest, wert thou not reserved for greater torments.I scorn thy threats, vain boaster, replied the Count: I will not exist one moment beyond my own pleasure: thou mayest kill, but thou canst not keep me [...]

My first foray into Valancourt books, which reprints old Gothic novels (and other stuff). Not too bad, this was originally published in the 1790s so it isn't exactly accessible. Still, plenty of gothic atmosphere and a decent story.
