In this thrilling tale of greed and deception, Cornell Woolrich tells of middle-aged Louis Durand, whose fiancee has died fifteen years ago on the eve of their wedding. Now Louis decides to take one more chance at love by marrying Julia Russell, a woman he knows only by correspondence. When she arrives on the day of their wedding, she is younger and more beautiful than he expected--and far more deadly. Louis soon comes to realize that Julia is not who she claims to be--and they both embark on a waltz into darkness.

Cornell George Hopley-Woolrich (born 4 December 1903 – died 25 September 1968) was an American novelist and short story writer who sometimes wrote under the pseudonyms William Irish and George Hopley. He is rated the fourth best crime writer of his day, behind only Dashiell Hammett, Erle Stanley Gardner and Raymond Chandler. A check of film titles reveals that more film noir screenplays were adapted from works by Woolrich than any other crime novelist, and many of his stories were adapted during the 1940s for Suspense and other dramatic radio programs. Woolrich's novels written between 1940 to 1948 are considered his principal legacy. During this time, he definitively became an author of novel-length crime fiction which stand apart from his first six works, written under the influence of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
