I've rather shamefully never read any of Du Maurier's books aside from Rebecca so picked this up to rectify that! I'm glad I did as I really enjoyed it. It seems Du Maurier is very good at writing about spoilt upper classes and that is effectively what this book is about. It takes place, in the most part, over the space of one day and the story unfolds in flashback. There's also a fantastic 'Weekend in the country' scene which made me laugh out loud. Worth reading for that alone.The characters (and the ending) were very reminiscent of Rebecca! All in all I'm looking forward to reading more by her.
