The Pursued, Paperback

The Pursued Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



Described as a 'riveting read' by Sarah Waters and acclaimed by crime writers such as Andrew Taylor, "The Pursued" is a dark, gripping 1930s psychological thriller by C.

S. Forester, the author of "Hornblower". The story begins when Marjorie, a young woman, arrives home one summer evening and finds her sister, dead, with her head in the oven.

She looks peaceful, as if she is asleep. Their mother suspects, however, that Dot's death was far from natural - and that she knows who the killer is.

So, slowly and meticulously, she plots her terrible revenge.

C. S. Forester's 1935 thriller "The Pursued", lost for decades, rewrote the traditions of crime fiction to create a dark, twisted portrayal of obsession and retribution.
