Description

“Are you sure? Don’t I inherit anything?”

“Not unless something happens to Miss Ann Vernon.”

Ann Vernon won’t marry her boyfriend Charles Anstruther, opting instead to become secretary to an old lady. She accompanies Mrs Halliday aboard the cruise-ship Emma, which eventually drops anchor at Loch Dhu, a remote and almost deserted Scottish lake. But what monstrous terror holds the region in its thrall? What is the secret of the island to which Ann gets taken? And what does Charles Anstruther find there when he comes to look for Ann?

Fear by Night was originally published in 1934. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
