    I read the first three stories but put it back on the shelf after that Slightly dated twists revelations that seem to undermine the imagination of the reader just because the twists seem like such cliches these days and are totally expected must have been good back in the day though I d read if I was staying in Devon a bit longer and it wasn t one of my Dad s books.I think some of the Twilight Zone storylines must have been influenced by Ellin.

    Nearly every story is a pure delight I read this as a teenager and many of the stories stuck in my head for years and years until I managed to locate this book again I took care to read each story slowly and usually only read one at a time to savour its deliciousness for a while I would love to find a similar master of suspense such as Ellin.

    Dated in places but still surprisingly funny and dark Ellin s stuff kind of sits halfway between Roald Dahl and Hitchcock.
