From the Inside Flap:

On a mild midwestern night in the early 1940s, Johnny Marr leans against a drugstore wall. He’s waiting for Dorothy, his fiancée, and tonight is the last night they’ll be meeting here, for it’s May 31st, and June 1st marks their wedding day. But she’s late, and Johnny soon learns of a horrible accident—an accident involving a group of drunken men, a low-flying charter plane, and an empty liquor bottle. In one short moment Johnny loses all that matters to him and his life is shattered. He vows to take from these men exactly what they took from him. After years of planning, Johnny begins his quest for revenge, and on May 31st of each year—always on May 31st—wives, lovers, and daughters are suddenly no longer safe.

About the Author:

CORNELL WOOLRICH (1903–68), considered by many to be the inventor of the noir genre, wrote his first novel while still attending Columbia University. Many screenplays have been based on his mysteries, including Night Has a Thousand Eyes, The Leopard Man, and Rear Window.

RICHARD DOOLING’s novel White Man’s Grave was a finalist for the 1994 National Book Award. His writings have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Yorker. His most recent novel is Bet Your Life, a modern take on noir detective fiction. He also writes for the ABC series Stephen King’s Kingdom Hospital.
