Review:

'A classic of suspence fiction.' -- The Observer

'The mix of the everyday and the extraordinary is deft...A most welcome return to print.' -- The Daily Telegraph

Synopsis:

'A suburban matron, harassed by wartime domestic problems - her husband is overseas - finds herself implicated in the murder of her young daughter's extremely unattractive beau' ("The New Yorker"). An outstanding example of the psychological thriller genre, 'worthy of the great Patricia Highsmith herself,' as Lady Antonia Fraser said in the "Spectator". "The Blank Wall" (1947) was filmed as "The Reckless Moment" in 1949 and as "The Deep End" in 2001, starring Tilda Swinton. In 1950 Raymond Chandler asked his English publisher, 'Does anybody in England publish Elisabeth Sanxay Holding? For my money she's the top suspense writer of them all.She doesn't pour it on and make you feel irritated. Her characters are wonderful; and she has a sort of inner calm which I find very attractive.' This tense and fast-paced novel is about maternal love and about the heroine's relationship with those around her, especially her children and her maid.
