Combining romance, intrigue, and danger, Wilkie Collins' beloved mystery novel has taken generations of readers on a thrilling ride along the corridors of English country houses, and down into the dankest, deepest corners of the Victorian madhouse. This bold new adaptation by Fiona Seres retains the creeping atmosphere that has captured the imaginations of the book's readers for over a century, while bringing a distinctly modern take to its striking female characters, its charismatic, formidable villains, and its gripping, labyrinthine plot.
When Walter Hartright, a young drawing master, encounters a ghostly woman dressed all in white on a moonlit road on London's Hampstead Heath, he is drawn into a web of intrigue that will transform his life forever. Offering his assistance to this distressed, spectral woman, he is later shocked to discover that she had just escaped from a nearby insane asylum.
