William Wilkie Collins was born in 1824 and died in 1889, after a 27-year addiction to opium and an irregular private life. He lived in London and was a great friend of Charles Dickens, who helped in the construction of the work. This early detective story has an ingenious plot and introduces a new narrative technique.
