The Heat of the Day by Elizabeth Bowen

Set in war-time London, this book is probably the nearest thing to a novel of suspense that Elizabeth Bowen has written. All the elements of a thriller are here, but what Bowen makes of them is an internal drama of remarkable perception and understanding in a domestic setting.
