An ordinary commute turns into a nightmarish game of hide and seek, a loving wife hides homicidal thoughts and a concerned citizen might just be an infamous serial killer, in this collection of Shirley Jackson's finest, most deliciously dark tales. Here nothing is as it seems and nowhere is safe, from the city streets to the crumbling country pile, and from the small-town apartment to the dark, dark woods.
