The Dark Clue is James Wilson's brilliant recreation of the Victorian suspense novel, as the characters from Wilkie Collins's The Woman in White - Walter Hartright and Marian Halcombe - are involved in another dramatic and dangerous investigation, this time emanating from the heart of respectable London society. Walter is commissioned to write a biography of the greatest of English painters, J. M. W. Turner, but soon finds Turner is a disturbingly elusive figure. His search takes us into Victorian England in all its staggering extremes of poverty and wealth, of slums and stately homes, of public morality and private vice, in an unforgettable tale of suspense.

Walter Hartwright is married, prosperous and a little bored. When he is approached to write a life of the painter Turner he accepts, unaware that his subject lived a life more dark than light. Researching the painter's life, he is soon affected with its possibilities of violence and even murder that he no longer trusts his own sanity and character.
