'I loved the fact that at the start of the story, Rebecca is dead and yet she influences every action and thought of all the other characters in the book.

The moment I finished this story, I turned to page one and started it over again' - MALORIE BLACKMAN'As a new generation of readers are introduced to the wicked housekeeper Mrs Danvers and learn Maxim de Winter's terrible secret, this chilling, suspenseful tale is as fresh and readable as it was when it was first written' Daily TelegraphOn a trip to the South of France, the shy heroine of Rebecca falls in love with Maxim de Winter, a handsome widower.

Although his proposal comes as a surprise, she happily agrees to marry him.

But as they arrive at her husband's home, Manderley, a change comes over Maxim, and the young bride is filled with dread.

Friendless in the isolated mansion, she realises that she barely knows him.

In every corner of every room is the phantom of his beautiful first wife, Rebecca, and the new Mrs de Winter walks in her shadow.
