Publisher's Summary

A married couple on holiday in Venice are caught up in a sinister series of events. A lonely schoolmaster is impelled to investigate a mysterious American couple. A young woman loses her cool when she confronts her father's old friend on a lonely island. A party of British pilgrims meet strange phenomena and possible disaster in the Holy Land. A scientist abandons his scruples while trying to tap the energy of the dying mind.

Collecting five stories of mystery and slow, creeping horror, Daphne Du Maurier's Don't Look Now and Other Stories showcases her unique blend of sympathy and spine-tingling suspense.

    Story
    "Good collection with moments of brilliance"

    The one thing that all these stories have in common is that Dame Daphne does not hesitate to put her characters right in the midst of hell.

    DON'T LOOK NOW is well known thanks to the Donald Sutherland - Julie Christie movie adaptation. Set in Venice, a couple looking for peace find anything but that in this tale of the paranormal, violence, and mystery.

    NOT AFTER MIDNIGHT is, I think, the most creative story here. A school teacher and amateur painter looks forward to a vacation in Crete. He's working toward an exhibition and wants nothing more than to paint in solitude, but a loud-mouthed, swearing, drunken "ugly American" puts paid to that ambition. I absolutely loved this one. It has so many elements I love to see in a story.

    A BORDERLINE CASE was disappointing. It is the lame story of a girl named Sheila who gets involved with something quite beyond her. Unlikely plot, unappealing characters.

    THE WAY OF THE CROSS is an excellent satire. A group of Church of England pilgrims to the Holy Land are the focus of du Maurier's jaded eye. A wonderful mix of types and situations.

    THE BREAKTHROUGH is an old school technological story that seems quaint today. An electronics electronics engineer finds himself in the midst of his most unusual work assignment to date when he is sent to an experimental group at a former radar station.

    Recommended to du Maurier fans.

    "Thrilling - worth the listen"

    While there were audio issue (two recordings from 1989) it's worth a listen. Not scary but gives you the chills. The frights are all left unspoken.

    "Some terrific stories and some not so terrific"

    This author has quickly become one of my all-time favorites. Her character development - even in these short stories - is wonderful. The first story was spine chilling and I absolutely loved, same with the second and the last. The middle two stories I could have done without, but that's what you get with a compilation
    of shorts. I would still recommend - some of the stories haunted me for days after!
