HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.`The woman who first gives life, light, and form to our shadowy conceptions of beauty, fills a void in our spiritual nature that has remained unknown to us till she appeared.'One of the earliest works of `detective' fiction with a narrative woven together from multiple characters, Wilkie Collins partly based his infamous novel on a real-life eighteenth century case of abduction and wrongful imprisonment.

In 1859, the story caused a sensation with its readers, hooking their attention with the ghostly first scene where the mysterious `Woman in White' Anne Catherick comes across Walter Hartright.

Chilling, suspenseful and tense in mood, the novel remains as emotive for its readers today as when it was first published.
