The inspiration behind BBC1's sensational psychological thriller mini series.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins features an afterword by writer, editor and playwright David Stuart Davies.

On a moonlit London night, art teacher Walter Hartwright meets a young woman - beautiful, terrified and dressed entirely white - alone on the street. Compelled to help this piteous creature, he finds himself caught up in a world of secrets, murder and madness, with an impossible mystery to solve.

The odds seem stacked against him, but a sleuthing partnership with the brilliantly clever Marian Halcombe may be just enough to outwit their formidable nemesis - the menacing Count Fosco.

One of the great mystery thrillers of the nineteenth century and beyond, The Woman in White is a wonderful combination of rich characterisation and cunning melodrama that ensnares the reader from the very first page.

“A compelling Victorian melodrama”

Collins creates in the initial pages a surreal atmosphere and sense of unreality which jolts the reader and which is maintained by the ghostly figure of Anne Catherick who haunts the pages of the novel to the very... More
