John Fowles’ short story – “The Enigma”
John Fowles’ short story “The Enigma“, which is one of five stories in his book “The Ebony Tower” (1974), deals with the mysterious disappearance of John Marcus Fielding.

She wore a fancy white dress and it was the hottest day in the year so far. They went for a little walk and Jennings asked her all the questions he already had asked all the other persons who were in contact to Fielding.
The answers she gave him were quite the same he already heard, but he went further and talked about her own private feelings towards Mr Fielding and how she felt he had been. She denied the speculation that Fielding was attracted to her, but she also did not know how to describe his attitude towards her. She always felt a bit unwell when they met; maybe because she did not want to be put in the daughter-in-law situation Fielding woul.....
