any of us know the incredible film based on this book, but the author, Du Maurier, continues to be one of the most influential suspense writers in history. So much of the Golden Age resurgence of the past few years claims inspiration from her writing - psychological suspense with elements of the supernatural. This book, from 1938, is set on the moody cliffs of Cornwall and needs no further introduction.

Also from 1938, Mary Roberts Rinehart (often dubbed the "American Agatha Christie") brings us another story set on a cliff in a gorgeous mansion with The Wall. This mansion is in Bar Harbor, Maine and Rinehart's mystery gives us much more of a classic golden-age small-town mystery feel. Originally serialized in The Saturday Evening Post, this mystery is one of her best, and stands the test of time beautifully. Enjoy!
