Daphne Du Maurier Walk - Jamaica Inn 25 June 2008
Assault and murder against the backdrop of Bodmin Moor

Many of Daphne Du Maurier's novels are set around Cornwall, where she spent most of her life. We look at how fact and fiction came together in her book Jamaica Inn and why it may be time for you to think again if you considered her a romantic writer: assault and murder – all played out against the harsh and inhospitable backdrop of Bodmin Moor.
