The woman in white by Wilkie Collins( Book )

1 edition published in 1860 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered to be one of the first mystery novels, "The Woman in White" was a huge commercial success when it was first published in 1860. The story is told from the point of view of multiple narrators, no doubt the influence of Collin's legal training. The plot also explores the disadvantageous position of married women in nineteenth century. The Observer listed "The Woman in White" in the top 100 novels of all time. A read not to be missed by mystery lovers or avid reader. -- Amazon

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille, the aging Doctor Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. There the lives of two very different men, Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer, become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette. From the tranquil roads of London, they are drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror, and they soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine. This edition uses the text as it appeared in its first serial publication in 1859 to convey the full scope of Dickens's vision, and includes the original illustrations by H.K. Browne ('Phiz'). Richard Maxwell's introduction discusses the intricate interweaving of epic drama with personal tragedy

Greatest Mystery Novels of Wilkie Collins : Thriller Classics: The Woman in White, No Name, Armadale, The Moonstone, The Haunted Hotel: A Mystery of Modern Venice, The Law and The Lady, The Dead Secret, Miss or Mrs? by John McLenan( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This carefully crafted ebook: "Greatest Mystery Novels of Wilkie Collins" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Woman in White is considered to be among the first mystery novels and is widely regarded as one of the first (and finest) in the genre of "sensation novels". The story is sometimes considered an early example of detective fiction with the hero, Walter Hartright, employing many of the sleuthing techniques of later private detectives. The Moonstone is an epistolary novel, generally considered the first detective novel in the English language. Besides creating many of the ground rules of the detective novel, The Moonstone also reflected Collins' enlightened social attitudes in his treatment of the servants in the novel. Armadale is a mystery novel and has a convoluted plot about two distant cousins both named Allan Armadale. The father of one had murdered the father of the other (the two fathers are also named Allan Armadale). The story starts with a deathbed confession by the murderer in the form of a letter to be given to his baby son when he grows up. No Name is a 19th-century novel revolving around the issue of illegitimacy. Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) was an English novelist, playwright, and author of short stories. His best-known works are The Woman in White, No Name, Armadale, and The Moonstone. Content: The Woman in White No Name Armadale The Moonstone The Haunted Hotel: A Mystery of Modern Venice The Law and The Lady The Dead Secret Miss or Mrs?
