The Woolrich ability to stop his readership's pulse has always meant good circulation for his books, and under his pseudonym of William Irish, too. The present collection is made up of 10 mystery novelettes and a number of his short stories. A master of the form and a most versatile creator, this Woolrich treasure chest holds something for every taste -- police method stories; suspense touched with a controlled horror; the psychological stumper, and the action chase/adventure. Pick a face, any face ... all handsome.

Cornell Woolrich

Cornell Woolrich was an American novelist and short story writer who sometimes wrote using the pseudonyms William Irish and George Hopley.

Most of Woolrich's books are out of print, and new editions have not come out because of estate issues. However, new collections of his short stories were issued in the early 1990s.

Woolrich died leaving fragments of an unfinished novel, titled The Loser; fragments have been published separately and also collected in Tonight, Somewhere in New York.
