Publisher's Summary

A happily married woman commits suicide for no apparent reason; a young man tries to break some important news to the beautiful girl he had hoped to marry; a con girl plays the same bold game too often and a novelist embarks on a romantic adventure but is woefully disappointed.
In all these stories, glimpses into personal lives are vividly portrayed, but they are all written with warmth and are wonderfully evocative.

Brilliant

Didn't realise what a master of the short story Daphne du Maurier was until I listened to these. Great stories, very varied, nicely read, and many feel very contemporary. Highly recommended.

- Mrs Kate Evans "Hooked on crime thrillers but occasionally try something different. I never read a review without giving a positive vote. It's only fair!"
