Inhaltsangabe: Marie Adelaide Lowndes née Belloc (1868-1947) was an English novelist who first achieved fame with the publication of THE LODGER (1913), an intense thriller based on the Jack the Ripper murders. THE LODGER concerns a London family who suspects that their upstairs lodger is a mysterious killer known as "The Avenger." The novel was the basis for four movie adaptions.
"One of the best suspense novels ever written."?The New York Times
"This is a beautifully wrought novel of psychological suspense that should have a place on any mystery buff's shelf of classics."?Chicago Sun-Times
The Ripper murders still arouse excitement, and The Lodger has lost none of its hushed, chilling terror over the years."?The Drood Review of Mystery
Inspired by the notorious Whitechapel murders, this 1913 thriller first appeared when Jack the Ripper's brutal crimes were well within living memory. Time has done nothing to diminish the popular fascination with the serial killings. This gripping tale of an elderly English couple's growing suspicions of their sinister boarder has served as the basis for several movies, including one of Alfred Hitchcock's first films.
