Publisher's Summary

In The Doll, a waterlogged notebook is washed ashore. Its pages tell a dark story of obsession and jealousy, but the fate of its narrator is a mystery. Many of the stories in this haunting collection have only recently been discovered and most were written early in Daphne du Maurier's career. Yet they display her mastery of atmosphere, tension and intrigue.

I loved this collection of early short stories by Daphne Du Maurier and thought some of them could be ranked amongst her best. My particular favourites were the one about the couple going away for the weekend; the story of an affair in letters; and the final monologue. I thought the narrator was superb! My only criticism - I wish there had been a slightly longer gap between stories. But that's minor. This was a very great listening pleasure for me.

Perhaps not the best of Daphne du Maurier stories, but still worth listening. At times the narrator sounds a little like Anne Atkins of Thought for the Day fame.
