'In one moment, every drop of blood in my body was brought to a stop...'

Gentle art teacher Walter Hartright has fallen in love with his student, Laura. But she is marrying the wicked Sir Percival, who wants to destroy her reputation and steal her fortune. In the face of his powerful friends, only Laura's resourceful sister Marian and faithful Walter can save her from his wicked machinations and the terrors of the insane asylum.

But who is the mysterious woman in white who haunts the moonlit roads and hidden graveyards? And will her secret save Laura - or destroy them all?

Book Description Penguin Classics, 2010. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. Neu Schnelle Lieferung, Kartonverpackung. Abzugsfähige Rechnung. Bei Mehrfachbestellung werden die Versandkosten anteilig erstattet. - Wilkie Collins, geb. 1824 in London als ältester Sohn des Landschaftsmalers William Collins und 1889 gestorben, hatte zunächst die juristische Laufbahn eingeschlagen, bis er beschloss, das Aufdecken von Kriminalfällen und Geheimnissen ausschließlich literarisch in Szene zu setzen. Er schrieb neben seinen Kurzgeschichten und Theaterstücken über 30 Romane. Seine heute berühmtesten Werke 'Der Monddiamant', in dem der erste Detektiv in der englischen Literatur auftritt, und 'Die Frau in Weiß', ein poetischer, mystisch-mysteriöser Thriller, fanden bereits beim zeitgenössischen Publikum größten Beifall.[^]3{#} 784 pp. Englisch.
