Meet the Author

Cornell Woolrich is widely regarded as the twentieth century’s finest writer of pure suspense fiction. Author of numerous classic novels and short stories (many turned into classic films) such as Rear Window, The Bride Wore Black, The Night Has a Thousand Eyes,  and I Married a Dead Man, Woolrich began writing in the 1920s with novels that won him comparisons to F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    Great Noir Novel

    Ever since I saw Hitchcock's Rear Window, I've wanted to read something by Cornell Woolrich. When I saw this Hard Case Crime paperback, I finally had my chance. Overall, it's a great read, even if it is slightly dated. It's easy to envision the book as a black and white noir thriller. I hope they bring back other Woolrich stories-- this was fun.

    'Fright' is good tale of murder and guilt.

    Guitt is a terrible thing but a great motivator. 'Fright's' suthor writes a graet story of murder and the ensuing ruinning from the law and guilt for the murder of a blackmaier on his wedding day. He doesn't tell his new Bride or a anyone else, for that matter. They move to a different town to get away, but to no avail. He's found!
    A good well written early 20th-century tale set in 1915 and it reads and feels like an original. A good well writen story by the same author that wrote 'Rear Window'! Fright' is a good, well written novel. Well worth the read.
