Night Must Fall

Emlyn Williams

An isolated house. A grisly murder. All of the evidence points to one man who, with increasingly brazen confidence, is insinuating himself into the household, gaining the trust of the owner and seducing her niece. Can he be stopped before he strikes again? Is there no one who will confront evil and stop it from progressing? You'll be on the edge of your seat as the tension builds and you wait to see what happens next.
