Read in January, 2009

Wilkie Collins writes clear, page-turning prose for a Victorian, and though this one is nowhere near as famous as his 'The Woman in White' or 'The Moonstone,' I found it quite compelling. It's the story of a young woman's mission to get revenge upon the heartless relatives who, via a legal loophole, rob her and her sister of their inheritance and legitimacy. The story twists one way and then the other, over and over, as the cat-and-mouse game plays out. Great for mystery/suspense fans, but Collins doesn't neglect the romance element either.
