In this gaily brilliant novel, Celia Fremlin exercises the skill of a virtuoso, counterpointing terror that is almost tangible with the frustrating and highly amusing problems of everyday living, and making all of it utterly convincing. The story has its beginnings fifteen years in the past.......... When Meg and Isabel were still children, their half-sister, Mildred had married a dark, handsome man, Paul, whom they adored, but who, soon after the wedding, was imprisoned for murdering his first wife. Now, with a full remission for good conduct, he could be free again; and Mildred, vacationing at the lonely seaside cottage where she and Paul had spent their honeymoon, hears footsteps during the night and is convinced that he has returned to kill her. Balancing psychological motivation on the swordpoint of threats of violence, the pace of queries and shivers quickens---culminating in a breath-taking denouement in the eerie light of dawn.
