Summary A groundbreaking detective story by the celebrated author of The Moonstone When Valeria Brinton marries Eustace Woodville, both families object strongly. Before long, Valeria realizes that they may have been right to voice their concerns. Eustace, it seems, is living under an assumed name. This alone would be enough to rouse his new bride's suspicions, but worse still, she discovers that he stood trial for the murder of his 1st wife! Although Eustace was not found guilty, the court was unable to find sufficient evidence to exonerate him. Determined to clear her husband's name and prove-to herself and everyone else-that he is innocent, Valeria takes the sleuthing into her own hands. Widely considered to be the 1st story featuring a female detective, The Law and the Lady is an intricate and classic tale. This ebook features a new introduction from Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
