The Far Cry

Fredric Brown


Once upon a time, in a lonely house near Taos, a girl named Jenny Ames was murdered. No one knew where she had come from, or why she had died, or what had become of her killer.
       Eight years later a troubled man named George Weaver moved into the same house and discovered that nothing is more treacherously seductive than an unsolved murder. Unless it’s a beautiful and enigmatic victim.
       The Far Cry is at once a seamlessly constructed novel of detection and a harrowing portrayal of psychic meltdown by a legendary practitioner of the art of suspense. This edition features a new introduction by William F. Nolan, a color cover, and six black & white interiors by Joe Servello, and is signed by Nolan and Servello.
       Cloth with printed front panels, clear Mylar dustjacket, and ribbon marker.
