Collecting five stories of suspense, mystery and slow, creeping horror, Daphne Du Mauriers Dont Look Now and Other Stories includes an introduction by Susan Hill, author of The Woman in Black, in Penguin Modern Classics.

John and Laura have come to Venice to try and escape the pain of their young daughters death. But when they encounter two old women who claim to have second sight, they find that instead of laying their ghosts to rest they become caught up in a train of increasingly strange and violent events. The four other haunting, evocative stories in this volume also explore deep fears and longings, secrets and desires: Not After Midnight, in which a lonely teacher investigates a mysterious American couple; A Border Line Case, in which a young woman confronts her fathers past and his associations with the IRA; The Way of the Cross, in which a party of pilgrims to Jerusalem encounter strange phenomena in the Garden of Gethsemane; and The Breakthrough, in which a scientist claims to be able to trap the soul at the point of death...
