 PDP #24 - "The Woman in White" by Wilkie Collins, Part 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Part 1 of the novel, "The Woman in White" a serialized mystery/suspense novel by Wilkie Collins, a contemporary of Charles Dickens, who also wrote "The Fatal Cradle" heard as an earlier short story podcast. The novel is one of the first to be set up in an original way for the time period, in that it has different narrators to tell different parts of the story. In the introduction it is explained that we shall hear the tale as if we were a Judge listening to eye witnesses. This has been touted as the first mystery novel by some and was turned into a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber which had sporadic runs with different Companies in 2004, 2005 and 2006. I; however, shall not be singing in the podcast so if you can stomach that disappointment, come along for a fun ride into mystery and suspense.
