Publisher's Summary

Lady Audley is universally adored: Beautiful, kind, and charming, she enamors all whom she meets. It is not until the strange disappearance of widower George Talboys that her behavior takes an odd turn. George's friend, Robert Audley, Lady Audley's nephew-in-law, is on the case; an upper-class layabout turned detective, he is determined to get to the bottom of things.
Mystery, mayhem, madness, and despair: Lady Audley's Secret is the gripping and suspenseful novel that has been branded "the most sensationally successful of all the sensation novels" (John Sutherland) and rivals some of Wilkie Collins' best books, such as The Moonstone and The Woman in White. Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens, and Henry James all admitted to reading Braddon's work with great enjoyment; Alfred Lord Tennyson professed to have read everything she ever wrote.
Kim Hicks gives an absorbing reading, full of charm and insight.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.
