Shrouds and Pockets
Author: Alfred Hitchcock (2009)
Pages: 449

Twenty eight stories are collected in this volume – twenty eight occasions for nefarious activity by the likes of theives and scoundrels, murderers and mischief-makers generally. In these stories, brought together as is our custom from the files of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery MAgazine, you will encounter a corner of Paris and or rural England; a tunnel to freedom; an island packed with sheriffs; a mansion of imitation ghosts; and a dream steam room. You’ll meet a boy with a magic tree; a salesman who makes a shoplifter buy up a storm; a barber with a past; a dog who follows a cat; and a millionaire’s daughter.
