In the title story, ''Death in Midsummer'', which is set at a beach resort, a triple tragedy becomes a cloud of doom that requires exorcising. In another, ''Patriotism'', a young army officer and his wife choose a way of vindicating their belief in ancient values that is as violent as it is traditional; it prefigured his own death by seppuku in November 1970. There is a story in which the sad truth of the relationship between a businessman and his former mistress is revealed through a suggestion of the unknown, and another in which a working-class couple, touching in their simple love for each other, pursue financial security by rather shocking means.<>
