Graceful and lovely Lady Audley may not be all that she seems in this Victorian-era equivalent of Gone Girl.

A bestseller when it was first published, Lady Audley’s Secret shocked readers because it dared to suggest that beneath a perfect surface, a woman might be willing to lie, con, and even kill to obtain the life she wanted.

Lady Audley is young, beautiful, and worshipped by her husband, the wealthy Sir Michael Audley, and everyone who meets her. Sir Michael’s nephew Robert is equally struck by his new aunt’s sweet and thoughtful nature—until, that is, he notices the strange, terrifying effect Lady Audley has on his friend George Talboys. When George mysteriously vanishes, Robert is convinced that Lady Audley is neither as innocent nor as helpless as she appears, and he sets out to discover what secrets lie in Lady Audley’s past.

Featuring an introduction by Flynn Berry, the Edgar Award-winning author of Under the Harrow and A Double Life.
