"Disasters, accidents, and deaths abound in Bluebeard's First Wife. A woman spends a night with her fianc ǎnd his friends, and overhears a terrible secret that has bound them together since high school. A man grows increasingly agitated by the apartment noise made by a young family living upstairs and arouses the suspicion of his own wife when the neighbors meet a string of unlucky incidents. A couple moves into a picture-perfect country house, but when their new dog is stolen, they become obsessed with finding the thief, and in the process, neglect their child. Ha's paranoia-inducing, heart-quickening stories will have you reconsidering your own neighbors"-- Provided by publisher.
