By the time The Law and the Ladyappeared in 1875, The Woman in Whiteand The Moonstonehad already established Collins as the leading practitioner of 'sensation fiction.' The Law and the Ladybuilds on this tradition by introducing one of English literature's earliest woman detectives, Valeria Woodville, who investigates the murder of her husband's first wife, in the attempt to prove him guiltless.

Wilkie Collins was born in London, England on January 8, 1824. He worked first in business and then law, but eventually turned to literature. During his lifetime, he wrote 30 novels, more than 60 short stories, at least 14 plays, and more than 100 non-fiction pieces. His works include Antonia, The Woman in White, The Moonstone, The Haunted Hotel, and Heart and Science. He was a close friend of Charles Dickens and collaborated with him. He died on September 23, 1889.
