Review of “Night and Fear”

Night and Fear: A Centenary Collection of Stories

Night and Fear: A Centenary Collection of Stories by Cornell Woolrich

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Reading this collection brings you back to the days when women were dames, wives, sweethearts or trouble; and Miranda was a singer with fruit salad on her head.

This is not a book for the woke or those who are offended by police brutality or ethnic stereotypes.

But, if you know who Alan Ladd is and can quote large sections of THE MALTESE FALCON, then you will be at home in this collection. Reading it and you want to have a scotch on the rocks, a cigarette in your hand and a snub nose .38 in your shoulder holster.
