But ever since Constance was acquitted of murdering the rest of the family, the world isn’t leaving the Blackwoods alone. And when Cousin Charles arrives, armed with overtures of friendship and a desperate need to get into the safe, Merricat must do everything in her power to protect the remaining family. In her final novel, Shirley Jackson displays a mastery of suspense, family relationships and black comedy. ‘A witch’s brew of eerie power and startling novelty’ The New York Times
