9780141192192: Penguin Classics If I Die Before I Wake (Penguin Modern Classics)

Laurence is a young ex-sailor who can't resist the lure of the good life, and when he finds a job as chauffeur to the wealthy Mr and Mrs Bannister, his occasional work leaves him free to indulge. Bannister himself is bitter - his twisted leg keeps him on the sidelines while his ravishingly beautiful wife endures his moods with saintly patience. Or does she? It's the Bannisters' closest friend, Grisby, who starts stirring, getting Laurence to agree to a crazy plot. It will net him thousands, no strings attached. But is it all too easy?

About the Author:

In writing If I Die Before I Wake, Sherwood King left a legacy of classic suspense writing, much copied and later immortalised in film.

Review:

Beautifully written and shocking. The suspense throughout is terrific. Will leave you considerably shaken * New Yorker * Not since The Postman Always Rings Twice has there been such breathless suspense * Philadelphia Ledger * Plot: clever. Style: swift, spare * Time *
