Overview

Cornell Woolrich: his name represents steamy, suspenseful fiction—chilling encounters on the dark and sultry landscape of urban America in the 1930s and 1940s.

Here, in this special collection, are five of his classic thrillers, including "Rear Window," the story of Hal Jeffries who, trapped in his apartment because of a broken leg, takes to watching his neighbors through his rear window—and becomes certain that one of those neighbors is a murderer.

With "Rear Window," as in the other four stories in this volume, Woolrich proves he is the all-time master of the noir genre.
