First edition of this collection of short stories from the author of Rebecca and Jamaica Inn. Along with the title story, this collection contains Don't Look Now, A Border-Line Case, The Way of the Cross and The Breakthrough, the latter being the earliest in the collection, written in 1964 in response to a request from Kingsley Amis who was hoping to edit a collection of science-fiction stories - a collection which never ultimately appeared.
