I know I ramble on quite a bit about the Brontes, Jane Austen and I even have an Emily Dickinson page. But, I also adore Wilkie Collins. The Woman in White is a favorite, favorite book.
Consequently, whenever I see the words “like Wilkie Collins” in book review, I rush out and use my gift certificate. I discovered The Meaning of Night in this manner. Today, I read Michael Cox has died. I hate it when a great story telling voice is silenced.

I didn’t care for The Meaning of Night but I quite enjoyed his The Glass of Time (very Wilkie Collins!) and was looking forward to his next. This is too bad.
I also love The Woman in White. Delish.
My favorite college professor was quite an authority on Wilkie Collins and I once asked him why he chose Collins. Two reasons: he loved mysteries [also taught a seminar on the Literature of Crime] and Collins had a short list of works.
