Three tales of psychological suspense from a British novelist who "along with Ruth Rendell, has almost cornered the market in horror stories" (The Times, London). According to the Independent on Sunday, Lesley Glaister "has the uncomfortable knack of putting her finger on the things we most fear." In this spine-chilling anthology, the Somerset Maugham Award–winning novelist finds terror in a Japanese prison camp, a hotel lobby, and the Australian outback. Easy Peasy: Zelda is getting ready for a date when the call comes: Her father has hanged himself. His suicide brings back terrifying childhood memories of screams in the night. A POW in a Japanese prison camp during World War II, her father was haunted by nightmares and guilty secrets. Zelda's journey into the past unearths troubling questions that must finally be answered. "Utterly satisfying . . . beautifully structured and almost painfully tender." —The Sunday Telegraph Nina Todd Has Gone: While on a business trip, Nina meets a gorgeous man in her hotel lobby, and even before their tryst is over, she's sorry she did it. The sooner she puts the sordid encounter behind her, the better. But Rupert isn't who he seems to be. And he isn't going away. He's on a personal mission—one he's been waiting years to fulfill. And it turns out Nina isn't exactly who she seems to be either. "A first-rate psychological thriller . . . The game of cat-and-mouse between the protagonists is consistently absorbing." —The Mail on Sunday As Far as You Can Go: For Cassie and Graham, the ad in the newspaper is a dream come true. Spending a year managing a farm in western Australia sounds like the perfect break from their hectic lives. But the weather in Wollongong is stifling hot and the outback is crawling with lethal creatures. And most unsettling of all, Cassie and Graham can't shake the feeling that they're being watched. "Chilling plausibility . . . A story whose message will linger long after the book is closed." —The Scotsman
