Waltz Into Darkness
Penguin Books, 1995 - 310 من الصفحات
In this thrilling tale of greed and deception, Cornell Woolrich tells of middle-aged Louis Durand, whose fiancee has died fifteen years ago on the eve of their wedding. Now Louis decides to take one more chance at love by marrying Julia Russell, a woman he knows only by correspondence. When she arrives on the day of their wedding, she is younger and more beautiful than he expected--and far more deadly. Louis soon comes to realize that Julia is not who she claims to be--and they both embark on a waltz into darkness.
