Modern British Intrigue

I enjoyed this book a lot. I was looking for something slightly creepy with a good narrative, and this was it. It made me think of the classic gothic British novels, only set in a more modern age. I enjoyed reading about the aristocratic culture in that sort of transitional period where people still had maids and butlers, gave balls, but were becoming more modern and independent. The suspense and twists involved were great, and I can't wait to check out the Hitchcock interpretation!

withstands the test of time

I love this book. I first read it in my 20's and have read it again every ten years or so. Just finished my 4th reading and it's just as good as ever. The author paints such vivid pictures and builds the suspense well. The ending is a surprise, but I, as the reader, never feel manipulated. Highly recommend for a leisure read.
