Comments & Further Information

This is a US mass market paperback. Unread but there is age tanning to the inside of the covers and to pages and the covers are showing some slight signs of storage wear.  Bought new at publication and stored carefully ever since.

Published by Dorchester Publishing in their Hard Case crime series, the book states on the front cover “first publication in over 50 years). It was originally published under the pseudonym George Hopley.

SYNOPSIS: “A man. A woman. A kiss in the dark. That is how it begins. But before his nightmare ends, Prescott Marshall will learn that kisses and darkness can both hide evil intent – and that the worst darkness of all may be lurking inside him.

Lost for more than half a century and never before published under Cornell Woolrich’s real name, Fright is a breathtaking noir crime novel worthy of the writer who has been called one of the giants of mystery fiction and the Hitchcock of the written word.”
