Publishers Weekly Review

The Woman in White

Publishers Weekly

(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Josephine Bailey and Simon Prebble turn in stellar performances of Collins's classic, commonly regarded as the world's first mystery novel. Late one night, on the way to his new post, art teacher Walter Hartright encounters a ghostly woman dressed all in white, tending to a grave. The next day, he meets his new pupils, Laura Fairlie and her half-sister, Marian, and discovers that the sisters have mysterious ties to the woman in white. For a story told by a sequence of first-person narrators, Bailey and Prebble provide well-paced, alternating readings: Prebble's Hartright is steady, even-keeled, and sensitive; his Marian is bright and clear and blunt. Bailey's Laura is equally well rendered: kind and young, sad and sweet. The voices both narrators provide the host of other characters-including the hot-tempered Sir Percival Glyde and the devious Count Fosco-are attended with equal imagination and skill. A must-listen for mystery lovers. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
