Summary A pair of artists is undone by jealousy and despair on the outskirts of London In a forgotten suburb of London recently leveled by German bombs, an artists' colony has taken root. Theo Freeland spent the war painting, studiously avoiding danger, while his wife, Suspiria, made pottery during the day and drove ambulances at night. But now the war is over, and Theo spends his time drinking himself into a stupor while Suspiria tolerates him as best she can. She has her work, and that's enough. After all, she and Theo are promised to each other-till death do they part. Death, as it happens, is right around the corner. Suspiria's life changes forever the night her husband is helped home by Dennis Forbes, a strapping young mechanic who can't take his eyes off the drunkard's wife. When Theo is later found poisoned, and Suspiria claims Dennis as her own, the village turns on them. But the real tragedy is yet to come.
