The Far Cry

The Far Cry

Fredric Brown

Science Fiction & Fantasy / Mystery & Thrillers

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. George Weaver was looking for peace and quiet, not murder, when he rented a house ten miles outside the town of Taos, New Mexico. However, murder soon comes to occupy George's sleeping and waking thoughts when he begins to dig out the details of a celebrated, unsolved case which happened years before in the very house he is living in. He finds himself falling in love with the dead girl, Jenny Ames, idealizing her, wishing it were she he'd married instead of Vi, to whom he is so unwillingly and unhappily married. The Far Cry is another top Fredric Brown job - a most adroit, inventive, and utterly horrifying mystery.
