Lady Audley's Secret was the most successful of a long series of novels written by Mary Elizabeth Braddon in what was then called the "sensation" genre because of the inventive and slightly scandalous plots of such works.

Published in 1862, Lady Audley's Secret was immediately popular and is said to have made a fortune for its author. It has never been out of print and has been the basis for a number of dramas and movies.

The novel begins with the return from the Australian goldfields of ex-dragoon George Talboys. Three years earlier, in the depths of poverty, he had abandoned his young wife and their baby in order to seek his fortune. He returns to England having made that fortune by finding a huge gold nugget. He enlists the help of his friend Robert Audley, a rather idle young barrister, to seek out his wife. To George's dismay and overwhelming grief, however, he sees a newspaper notice of the death of his wife only a few days prior to his return.

A year later, when visiting Audley's relatives and after catching a glimpse of the pretty new wife of Robert's uncle, George goes missing. Robert becomes increasingly convinced that his friend has met with violence and is dead, and begins to investigate. What he discovers fills him with despair.

This new annotated edition includes several never-before-seen features, like:
?The original editor's preface that accompanied the original printing.
?Easily navigable Table of Contents.
