""Beautifully played out to a startling and valid ending ... Fremlin is here to stay as a major mistress of insight and suspense."--The New York Times "Fremlin puts a keen edge on the reader's curiosity and keeps it there ... the writing is so good throughout."--The Times (London) Literary Supplement "An original entertainment, with unexpected turns and fine touches." -- Kirkus. Meg and Isabel were just girls when "Uncle Paul" married their older half-sister, Mildred, and he soon vanished from their lives upon his exposure as a bigamist and a murderer. Fifteen years later, Uncle Paul is about to be released from prison, and all three sisters are seized with dread at the prospect of his return. Their family holiday at the seaside village where Mildred and Uncle Paul once honeymooned becomes the setting for a tense drama of suspicion, betrayal, and revenge. Author Celia Fremlin received an Edgar Award for her suspenseful debut novel, The Hours Before Dawn. Her second thriller, Uncle Paul, evokes a similar atmosphere of menace as the paranoia of her characters -- and readers -- combines to form a mood of increasing tension. Rich in psychological insight and dark humor, the elegant, razor-sharp quality of Fremlin's writing provides page-turning excitement"--

"Rosamund and Geoffrey's new neighbor, Lindy, is smart, good-looking, friendly, and delightful in every way. The problem is Geoffrey's a little too delighted with her, and his wife is not happy about it. While Rosamund is in a feverish state from a bout of the flu, she dreams of murdering Lindy -- and upon waking is horrified to discover that she has inexplicably disappeared. What could possibly have happened? Was it more than just a terrible nightmare? "A tense situation, ultimately resolved by a beautifully fitting plot twist," declared The New York Times, adding, "Even more memorable than the suspense story is the witty and acute comedy."Celia Fremlin is noted for injecting her fast-paced psychological thrillers with keen observations of domestic life in the London suburbs during the 1960s. Her other novels, also available from Dover Publications, include Uncle Paul, The Trouble Makers, and the Edgar Award-winning classic, The Hours Before Dawn"--
