Overview

The 1947 cult classic from acclaimed crime writer John Franklin Bardin, now available for the first time in eBook edition.

Philip Banter is a little too fond of drink, and his marriage isn't what it should be. He's also troubled by a penchant for forgetting. That doesn't mean he's losing his mind.

Then Philip finds a manuscript entitled "Confession" in his office. He reads about a surprise dinner party his wife held, of the conversation that took place, and —to his horror—of his own infidelity. But the "confession" turns out to be a prophecy, accurate in almost every detail.

Is he the victim of a conspiracy to drive him mad, or did he type the manuscript himself? As the "confession" grows lengthier and more destructive, can he find the willpower to resist its terrifying inevitability?

Meet the Author

John Franklin Bardin was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on November 30, 1916. During his teens, he lost nearly all of his immediate family to various illnesses. As he approached thirty, he moved to New York City where he was an executive of an advertising agency, publishing ten novels and teaching creative writing and advertising at the New School for Social Research. In 1946, Bardin entered a period of intense creativity during which he wrote three crime novels that have since become genre-spanning classics: The Deadly Percheron, The Last of Philip Banter, and Devil Take the Blue-Tail Fly. Mr. Bardin resided in New York City's East Village until his death in 1981.
