About this title:

Synopsis: [Read by Stefan Rudnicki]

An original and terrifying mystery by noir writer Fredric Brown.

Once upon a time, a girl named Jenny Ames was murdered in a lonely house. No one knew where she had come from, or why she had died, or who killed her. Years later, a man moved into the same house - and discovered that nothing is more seductive than an unsolved murder.

George Weaver was looking for peace and quiet, not murder, when he rented a house ten miles outside the town of Taos, New Mexico. However, murder soon comes to occupy George's sleeping and waking thoughts when he begins to dig out the details of a celebrated, unsolved case which happened years before in the very house he is living in. He finds himself falling in love with the dead girl, Jenny Ames, idealizing her, wishing it were she he'd married instead of Vi, to whom he is so unwillingly and unhappily married.

The Far Cry is another top Fredric Brown job - a most adroit, inventive, and utterly horrifying mystery.

About the Author: Fredric Brown (1906-1972) was the only writer to achieve equal prominence in the mystery and science fiction genres. His first foray into mystery, The Fabulous Clipjoint, won the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Award for Best First Novel. Brown was also the acknowledged master of the short short story; the famous collection Nightmares and Geezenstacks demonstrates his consummate mastery of a form limited to no more than five hundred words. His short story ''Arena'' was the basis of a famed Star Trek episode; ''Martians, Go Home!'' was adapted for a 1992 film; ''The Last Martian'' was adapted for Serling's Twilight Zone and starred Steve McQueen at the start of his career. Brown's work, more than forty years after his death, is increasingly prominent.
