"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. " This - the first sentence of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca - is probably one of the most famous openings to any novel. But the end of Rebecca is even more intriguing: "There was no moon. The sky above our head was inky black. But the sky on the horizon was not dark at all. It was shot with crimson, like a splash of blood. And the ashes blew towards us with the salt wind from the sea".What happened after the fatal fire at Manderley? What happened to Max de Winter and to his second wife? What for that matter, happened to Mrs Danvers and Jack Favell? Millions of readers have wondered. Now it can be told. Susan Hill, a distinguished novelist writing at the top of her form, has imagined, brilliantly and wholly convincingly, precisely what happened next. Daphne du Maurier would approve, so too will innumerable readers of Rebecca, and the huge number of people who appreciate the joining of a great novelist to a wonderful story.
