Loses its strength a bit on the length, but the character of Uncle Silas almost makes up for it. He's multidimensional, mysterious and more than once got me to question his nature. Towards the end the plot thickens incredibly fast and you just want to race to the last page, even though it's clear how all's going to be finished. All in all a nice Victorian mystery, especially for the fans of The Woman in White.
