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