Publisher's Summary

One of the greatest mystery thrillers ever written, Wilkie Collins's The Woman in White was a phenomenal best seller in the 1860s, achieving even greater success than works by Charles Dickens. Full of surprise, intrigue, and suspense, this vastly entertaining novel continues to enthrall audiences today.

The story begins with an eerie midnight encounter between artist Walter Hartright and a ghostly woman dressed all in white who seems desperate to share a dark secret. The next day Hartright, engaged as a drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie and her half sister, tells his pupils about the strange events of the previous evening.

Determined to learn all they can about the mysterious woman in white, the three soon find themselves drawn into a chilling vortex of crime, poison, kidnapping, and international intrigue.

Masterfully constructed, The Woman in White is dominated by two of the finest creations in all Victorian fiction: Marion Halcombe, dark, mannish, yet irresistibly fascinating, and Count Fosco, the sinister and flamboyant "Napoleon of Crime".

What the Critics Say

"Collins's mid-Victorian novel is one of the first, and possibly still the greatest, of all literary thrillers." (The Irish Times)

    "Unusual but Enjoyable"

    This book started out slowly . I tried to listen to it 2 or 3 times without interest so I left it for several months. Finally, one day I was desperate for an audio book to listen to so I tried this one again. I must have been in just the right frame of mind because it finally sparked my interest. The narration is done by Josephine Bailey who performs the different women very well and Simon Prebble who performs the more difficult men but also very well. The story drags a bit on occasion but overall was fairly enjoyable. It was quite different in the way it was narrated and took some getting used to but after all was said and done I look back and realize I enjoyed it quite a lot, especially the way it ended!

    "I'm in love!"

    This is the first Collins novel that I've experienced. I must say I am IN LoVe! Mr. Collins now joins the likes of Dickens, And Hardy in my heart. Every detail was thought out and tied up at the end. A very interest cast of characters that exhibited all of humanity. A few angelic and lovely female leads that behaved above reproach and were rewarded. A few characters, both male and female that were quite depraved and were also rewarded thusly. If you put the time in- either in print, kindle or audio book, you will be so happy you did. Brilliant and delicious!

    "Great Literary Period Mystery"

    Simply incredible read. Wasn't ready to end. Love the genre. Highly recommend. Felt I knew the characters by the end. Never could guess what Glide and Fosco had to hide.

    "Surprisingly good"

    I didn't expect to like this so much. I thought at first it would be a little too high school British lit for me but once I became accustomed to the verbosity and formality of language I was hooked. Great story.

    "A tad long"

    Despite it turns to be an interesting story by the middle, the story is a bit long specially by the beginning where it gets to be a bit repetitive.

    "Fabulous"

    This could really have been written this century. It doesn't miss a beat of suspense and intrigue. Beautifully written and superbly narrated. What a tale!

    Story
    "Victorian suspense brought to life!"

    Great narration of a sometimes dense and very long book. Though I knew the gist of the story from movies, etc., I had never read the novel because of its length. So glad I bought the audio book! The character's voices were all distinct and interesting to listen to and the two narrators brought them to life. The danger of any novel with multiple points of view is that the reader is inevitably sorry when the next character/narrator appears, but the audio narration here is so seamless that within a short while the reader is interested and acclimated again and ready to keep going. As rediculous as it sounds, I wish the book could have gone on even longer.

    "Stellar"

    This is one of the best books I've ever read or listened to. I'm going to miss everyone from it, but Fosco especially. What an exceptionally conceived character.
