Rear Window / It Had to be Murder
The Cornell Woolrich Omnibus: Rear Window and Other Stories / I Married a Dead Man / Waltz into Darkness - Cornell Woolrich

Mystery aficionado Ellery Queen said of Cornell Woolrich that he can "distill more terror, more excitement, more downright nail-biting suspense out of even the most commonplace happenings than nearly all his competitors".Woolrich's work continues to fascinate readers all around the world, and this trilogy should become a staple in all noir collections. It contains two full length novels (I Married a Dead Man and Waltz into Darkness) and five short stories, including "Rear Window" -- works in which one of the genre's consumate "poets of terror" explores all the classic noir themes of loneliness, despair, futility, and occasionally redemption.

Currently reading -- "Rear Window" (originally titled: "It Had to be Murder") by Cornell Woolrich 

 

[Note: My copy of the story comes from The Cornell Woolrich Omnibus. It is the only story from this collection that I will be reading for the time being.]
