The Hours Before Dawn (1958) was Celia Fremlin's debut fiction, and won the Edgar Award for novel of the year from the Mystery Writers of America. Over time Fremlin would earn the soubriquet of 'the mistress of psychological suspense.' Louise Henderson is a young housewife and mother, trying her best to tend to a husband, two small daughters and a constantly crying baby. Her fatigue is such that she fears she is nearing psychosis; and she can't help but feel that a new lodger in the house, a seemingly respectable schoolmistress, poses a threat to her and her family. "Tightly plotted and admirably concise...Fremlin expertly ratchets up the tension, notch by notch". (Laura Wilson). "Highly intelligent entertainment, beautifully written with wit and humour". (Frances Fyfield). "It grips like grim death". (Spectator).
