The cover of this edition imitates the spiralling of each of Du Maurier’s five short stories that constitute this book. The entire collection is atmospheric as we take a dip into the murky waters of loneliness, haunting pasts and murder. Each story delivers the Du Maurier feel that is a blend of exotic physical settings and strange phenomena that I have fallen deeply into from my first reading of ‘Rebecca’ (one of my top five recommended books).
The titular story ‘Don’t Look Now’ is undoubtedly the prize-winner, surviving a tale of fortune-telling, foreboding and fatalities as an unknowing couple is swept up in a mystery on the enigmatic lands of Venice! Whether the other stories equate to the satisfaction of this one is questionable, but there is surely a couple of gems for anyone within these five narratives that you’ll want to keep for those ghost story-telling nights!
