Book Overview

Lucille Morrow was blessed -- a beautiful woman with a devoted husband. One day a mysterious messenger delivered a package, and suddenly Lucille Morrow was gone. Dominated by fear, she committed herself into an asylum. Searching for the cause, Inspector Sands follows a long trail which takes him to an abyss of horror, murder and retribution the likes of which he's never seen.

"Give Me More Food and Clotherings!"

I read this story several years ago in an Alfred Hitchcock book of short stores (although this is actually a short novel). It stayed with me and I had to read it again. Pampered and protected, Lucille Morrow has a secret which she has kept for 16 years, and it hasn't bothered her in the slightest. Unfortunately, someone has found out about it, and now they are ready for her to pay the price. Although the ending of this story seemed rather contrived and not in line with the motivations of the character haunting Lucille, the writing and the idea are both excellent (and scary).

A Haunting Read

Lucille Morrow has it all. She is a very well-to-do suburban housewife, with a loving husband, children, a gracious home, money, jewels and the beauty of her youth. What is it that takes her into a fatal plunge down in a spiraling madness? Margaret Millar spun (in 1945, no less!) a horrific gothic of autenthic ghosts and how the shadows of the past will never let go. As usual with this author, the ending is a gem.
