Jamaica Inn : The thrilling gothic classic from the beloved author of REBECCA Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback


AN UNFORGETTABLE STORY OF MURDER, MYSTERY AND PASSION, FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF REBECCA. 'Jamaica Inn is a first-rate page-turner' THE TIMES'Daphne du Maurier has no equal' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Jamaica Inn is a novel about nothing less than pure evil ... with an eerie and shocking kind of power, in the novel's astonishing final act' JULIE MYERSON, GUARDIAN In the bitter November wind, Mary Yellan crosses Bodmin Moor to Jamaica Inn.

Her mother's dying wish was that she take refuge there with her Aunt Patience.

But when Mary arrives, the warning of the coachman echoes in her mind.

Jamaica Inn has a desolate power and behind its crumbling walls, Patience is a changed woman, cowering before her brooding, violent husband.

When Mary discovers the inn's dark secrets, the truth is more terrifying than anything she could possibly imagine and she is forced to collude in her uncle's murderous schemes.

Against her will, she finds herself powerfully attracted to her uncle's brother, a man she dares not trust. Jamaica Inn is a dark and gripping gothic tale that will remind readers of two other great classics, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.

This was also made into a film, also called Jamaica Inn, directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
