An embattled inheritance, accusations of madness, scheming villainy and much more tie into the labyrinthine plot of one of the most celebrated and sensational novels of the Victorian era."

A young man just beginning a new job in London meets with a strange woman on a moonlit road, offers her assistance getting into the city and then finds she may have just escaped an asylum. Hidden connections are unveiled between the family that employs the young man and the mysterious woman, pulling the reader into a suspenseful web of plots within plots, theft, betrayal, mistaken identities and attempted murder. Punctuating his dramatic narrative with sharp suspense and sudden moments of revelation that provide shock and understanding in equal measure, Wilkie Collins was pioneer of the literary thriller. In 1859, when serialized in Charles Dickens magazine, All the Year Round, crowds lined up to buy each installment of The Woman in White. Modern readers will be grateful to have the entire text at hand as the author's remarkable storytelling skills retain their power to ensnare, enchant and keep the pages turning toward the unpredictable conclusion.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Woman in White is both modern and readable.

About the Author
Collins, Wilkie: -

Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) was an English author of fiction and plays. Remembered today chiefly for two novels, The Woman in White and the landmark mystery The Moonstone, the author's work was extraordinarily popular in his lifetime. Collins was a friend of Charles Dickens, who published some of his best received work. Collins led a rather Bohemian lifestyle, didn't believe in marriage and had two long-term concurrent lovers. The author's health was an issue from an early age and as he grew older he medicated himself with opium, resulting in an addiction that damaged both his health and work.
