Publisher's Summary

Marjorie had never seen a dead person until she got home one tranquil summer evening and found her sister’s body. She looked peaceful, as if she was asleep. Their mother suspects, however, that Dot’s death was far from natural. What’s more, she’s convinced she knows who the killer is. Slowly and meticulously, she plots her revenge. After all, who would suspect a neatly dressed, grey-haired widow of anything?

C. S. Forester’s thriller The Pursued (1935) rewrote the traditions of crime fiction to create a dark, twisted psychological portrayal of obsession and retribution, but its typescript manuscript was lost and never published. Now, more than seven decades later, it has been rediscovered and published for the first time.
