Summary

An original and terrifying mystery by noir writer Fredric Brown.

Once upon a time, a girl named Jenny Ames was murdered in a lonely house. No one knew where she had come from, or why she had died, or who killed her. Years later, a man moved into the same house - and discovered that nothing is more seductive than an unsolved murder.

The Far Cry is another top Fredric Brown job - a most adroit, inventive, and utterly horrifying mystery.

Classic 1950's Noir

This is a crime novel from the 1950's about a man who heads to a cabin in the Southwest to recover from a breakdown and becomes obsessed with an old murder case. It was republished in the 1980's as part of the excellent Black Lizard collection so you know it's a good one.

Stefan Rudnicki is an excellent narrator for this sort of book.
