The Woman in White (Oxford World's Classics)
"The best mystery story ever written in my opinion! A Classic! It has everything to hold the readers attention: Madness, Disguise, Romance,Trickery and Murder in the Murky Streets of London."

No Name (Oxford World's Classics)
"This book does not get as much recognition as Collin's 'The Woman In White' yet I feel it is just as good. The ending is simply magical!"
