About the Author

Charlotte Armstrong (1905-1969) was an Edgar Award-winning American author of mystery short stories and novels. Born and raised in the mining region of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, she moved to New York and received a B.A. degree from Barnard in 1925. She had two plays produced on Broadway but neither was successful, so she turned to writing mystery fiction, beginning with Lay On, MacDuff (1942), the first of three detective novels featuring Professor MacDougal Duff. Several of her novels were adapted for film, including The Unsuspected, The Chocolate Cobweb, and Mischief.

A. J. FINN lived in England for many years before returning to his native New York. His debut novel, The Woman in the Window, has been published in more than forty languages and sold millions of copies worldwide.

Reviews

The narrative skill is considerable, and the tale a tense performance.
In the best sense of the term, a novel of suspense . . . Skillfully handled."
Psychologically rich, intricately plotted and full of dark surprises, Charlotte Armstrong's suspense tales feel as vivid and fresh today as a half century ago.--Megan Abbott
Superior . . . Armstrong maintains nail-biting suspense throughout.--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
