Overview

Phantom lady, I was with you for six hours last night, but I can't remember what you look like, or what you wore — except for that large orange hat.

We sat shoulder to shoulder at a little bar in the east Fifties. We ate dinner together, saw a Broadway show together, shared a cab together.

The bartender, the waiter, the usher, the cab driver — none of them remembers you. The police say I was home strangling my wife at the moment I met you.

You are the only one who can prove my story — but I don't know your name, or where you live. And I can't search for you from a jail cell....

Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post - Michael Dirda
Phantom Lady is…one of the most highly regarded of Cornell Woolrich's many classic noir thrillers. Given that those thrillers include The Bride Wore Black—its plot lifted by Quentin Tarantino for Kill Bill—and the story behind the Hitchcock masterpiece Rear Window, that's saying something. While Raymond Chandler writes like a street-smart angel and David Goodis…is the chronicler of existential angst, Woolrich…almost always focuses on the creation of relentless, unforgiving tension and suspense.
