Jamaica Inn

Серия: "VMC"

After the death of her mother, Mary Yellan crosses the windswept Cornish moors to Jamaica Inn, the home of her Aunt Patience. There she finds Patience a changed woman, downtrodden by her domineering, vicious husband Joss Merlyn. The inn is a front for a lawless gang of criminals, and Mary is unwillingly dragged into their dangerous world of smuggling and murder. Before long she will be forced to cross her own moral line to save herself.

Du MAURIER, Daphne

(1907-1989)
   UK writer, granddaughter of George DU MAURIER, famous for dark-hued romances (like Rebecca [1938]), usually set in Cornwall and often - like her first, The Loving Spirit (1931), a ghost story - tinged with the supernatural; drugs send the protagonist of The House on the Strand (1969) into medieval Cornwall. Her one sf novel, Rule Britannia (1972), subjects a NEAR FUTURE Cornwall to US INVASION, during which the natives rebel against the tasteless Yankees. Among DDM's short stories are "The Birds", from The Apple Tree: A Short Novel and Some Stories (coll 1952; vt Kiss Me Again, Stranger 1953 US; vt The Birds and Other Stories 1963 UK), which was made by Alfred Hitchcock into The BIRDS (1963), and "Don't Look Now", from Not After Midnight (coll 1971; vt Don't Look Now 1971 US), which Nicholas Roeg filmed as Don't Look Now (1973).
