Du Maurier's skill as a writer amazes me. Even knowing the ending (having read it several times), I still feel the thrill of the building pressure on de Winter. The twist at the end is brilliant and I can understand why this book has won the Anthony Award for best novel of the century.
31. Death in a White Tie AND Enter a Murderer by Ngaio Marsh. Two of the best Roderick Alleyn books.
32. Seven Suspects (Death at the President's Lodgings) OR Weight of the Evidence by Michael Innes. Two of his academic-related mysteries. They both have that particular brand of Innes wackiness...You either love it or hate it. I love it.
79. Death Under Sail by C. P. Snow. Roger Mills, a Harley Street specialist, is taking a sailing holiday on the Norfolk Broads. When his six guests find him at the tiller of his yacht with a smile on his face and a gunshot through his heart, all six fall under suspicion in this, C P Snow's first novel.
