When Walter Hartwright encounters a solitary, terrified, beautiful woman dressed in white on a moonlit night in London, he feels impelled to solve the mystery of her distress. The story, full of secrets, locked rooms, lost memories, and surprise revelations, features heroine Marian Halcombe and drawing-master Walter Hartright as sleuthing partners pitted against the diabolical Count Fosco and Sir Percival Glyde. This gothic psychological thriller, a mesmerizing tale of murder, intrigue, madness, and mistaken identity, has gripped the imagination of readers since its first publication in 1860. The breathtaking tension of Collins's narrative created a new literary genre of suspense fiction, which profoundly shaped the course of English popular writing.

Overall I enjoyed this but I also tend to enjoy long-winded Victorian era melodramas. The recording is great and everyone did a great job. That said, I think I might like the televised versions more…

A real delight. The cast does a very good job, not just in their narrated character but in a reasonable consistency of the other characters they have to portray in conversations. Glen McCready narrates Walter Hartright’s sections well but it’s the other characters he portrays that bring things to life. I was hooked as soon as he exaggerated Professor Pesca’s Italian roots in his language (despite being described as “a perfect Englishman in his language”). The star of the show, as he is in the book, is Count Fosco despite his limited direct appearance. The other readers take pains to emphasize the slimy and self-inflated character, although it’s the conversations with his pets that I’ll probably remember most. Not a dull moment in the twenty-eight hours--a showcase for a perfect match between novel and medium.

The mood and suspense were maintained thhroughout the novel. The plot twists will have you guessing at different intervals about the fate of the major characters. The ending is well done, it doesn't disappoint and leaves no questions unanswered. Overall, this was a good gothic novel.
