The Cemetery Man: And Other Darkside Tales
Bill Pronzini, famed for his "Nameless" detective series, displays his darker side--along with his remarkable breadth--in this stunning collection of 19 stories. We meet an array of grasping characters who seem to inhabit their own nightmares. A hapless store clerk who only wants to "look" at a beautiful young neighbor . . . A woman trapped with a killer who just happened to wash ashore . . . A good Samaritan who gives a lift to a madman . . . A tormented husband who dreams of a little room of his own . . . Stretching over five decades, here is a collection that demonstrates again Bill Pronzini's mastery of popular fiction.
