In Basil s secret and unconsummated marriage to the linen draper s sexually precocious daughter and the shocking betrayal insanity and death that follow Wilkie Collins reveals the bustling commercial London of the th century wreaking its vengeance on a still powerful aristocratic world, Three years ago her husband stood accused of murder and the verdict that came in from the jury was the Scottish Verdict Not Proven The jury had not evidence enough to convict him nor enough to comfortably exonerate him Eustace could not bear the weight of her discovery he fled to the continent to live in anonymity But Valeria knew her husband and she loved him She knew he was innocent too with the sort of intuition that guides the lucky flawlessly And she set out to prove it to the world Valeria Woodville is one of English literature s earliest women detectives that makes the novel historically remarkable But it s also a great fun mystery full of plot and circumsance and a rogue s gallery of odd Dickensian characters The Law and the Lady is as remarkable a novel today as it was when it was first published in, The novel has a convoluted plot about two distant cousins both named Allan Armadale The father of one had murdered the father of the other the two fathers are also named Allan Armadale The story starts with a deathbed confession by the murderer in the form of a letter to be given to his baby son when he grows up Many years are skipped over The son mistreated at home runs away from his mother and stepfather and takes up a wandering life under the assumed name of Ozias Midwinter, No description available
