Cornell Woolrich, best known as the author of "Rear Window," is unsurpassed in his ability to create and sustain sheer suspense. In his tales of terror, ordinary people find themselves in the most extraordinary circumstancesand, as readers, we share their spine-tingling tension every step of the way. Here, collected for the first time, are four of his most nail-biting novellas.

The Night I Died

Ed Blisss new bride, miffed by her husbands insults about her biscuits, promises that Ed will never have to see her againand storms out! When she doesnt return within a few days, Ed begins to suspect foul playbut when he reports the crime to the police, hes the first one they suspect!
Murder Always Gathers Momentum

Now the guilt-ridden Paine, whod never before committed a crime, is convinced that people will figure out what happened. As his paranoia gathers momentum, anyone he meets is at risk of becoming his next victim.
About the Author
Suspense fiction writer Cornell Woolrich (1903-1968) has been called the “Father of Noir” and the “Edgar Allan Poe of the 20th Century.” His stories were the basis of such classic suspense films as Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” and Truffaut’s “The Bride Wore Black.” Other well-known works by Woolrich (sometimes writing under the pseudonym William Irish) include “Phantom Lady,” “Black Angel,” “Deadline at Dawn,” and “I Married a Dead Man.” (2016-06-21)
