By: Wilkie Collins
The Law and the Lady builds on that tradition by introducing one of English literature's earliest women detectives, Valeria Woodville, who investigates the murder of her husband's first wife in the attempt to prove him guiltless.
Wilkie Collins tells the story of Magdalen Vanstone. When she and her sister are revealed as illegitimate, they are denied their inheritance and excluded from society. Her sister bows to her fate, but Magdalen herself is determined to overcome society's obstacles to claim her money and her position.
