Item Details

"The opening chapter defies description. Imagine one of those 1930s screwball comedies with the crazy situations, but substitute malevolence for humor."--Karl Edward Wagner nbsp; "Doctor, I'm losing my mind." So begins John Franklin Bardin's unconventional crime thriller in which a psychiatrist attempts to help his patient lead to a dead-end world of amnesia and social outcasts. The Deadly Percheron is a murder mystery, poignant love story, and an unsettling and hallucinatory voyage into memory, madness, and despair.

Opinion

From Library Staff

A psychological corkscrew full of originality and madness, this novel published in 1946 was sold as crime fiction but descends into a blurred carnival of twisted noir. An inventive mind hurricane, for those noir lovers who don’t like everything wrapped up in a tidy bow.
