The Woman in White

As a retired Aerospace worker, I find myself with plenty of time to read.  In fact, I even spend a considerable amount of time with fiction.  In the last few months I have re-read Doyle’s Canon (the many adventures of Sherlock Holmes), several Agatha Christie stories to include the ABC murders, They Came to Baghdad, Murder in Mesopotamia, The Murder on the Links, Five Little Pigs and many more.  I found these stories to be absolutely delightful.  Many were real page-turners. The other day I was looking at Project Gutenberg hoping to find a good mystery ebook to read.  I chanced upon a book The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins.  I never heard of this author before.  He was a contemporary of Charles Dickens and while both were alive he was over-shadowed by Dickens.  But now his books are being re-discovered.  You can learn more about him at

I have not quite finished The Woman in White, but it has really turned into a great page-turner.  I seem to ignore my daily routine just to read one or two more chapters.  Let me know what you think.
