Lady Audley is universally adored: Beautiful, kind, and charming, she enamors all whom she meets. It is not until the strange disappearance of widower George Talboys that her behavior takes an odd turn. George's friend, Robert Audley, Lady Audley's nephew-in-law, is on the case; an upper-class layabout turned detective, he is determined to get to the bottom of things.
Mystery, mayhem, madness, and despair: Lady Audley's Secret is the gripping and suspenseful novel that has been branded "the most sensationally successful of all the sensation novels" (John Sutherland) and rivals some of Wilkie Collins' best books, such as The Moonstone and The Woman in White. Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens, and Henry James all admitted to reading Braddon's work with great enjoyment; Alfred Lord Tennyson professed to have read everything she ever wrote.
Kim Hicks gives an absorbing reading, full of charm and insight.

Great Book with a Great Reader!
A Classic Read by a Wonderful Narrator
Maybe. It's long.
This is a classic story in the Dumas style. Very "listenable." The descriptions of Lady Audley are wonderful. She is as vivid and real as any venal woman in literature.
I have not heard her other performances but would definitely buy another
At 13 hours, it would have been hard to listen to it in one sitting but possible.
