Description

Noir contains three long-lost thrillers by Richard Matheson, the grand master of suspense. Originally published in the 1950s, at the very beginning of Matheson's distinguished career, these page-turning classics have been largely out-of-print for decades. Now readers everywhere can savor three unforgettable tales of crime, corruption, and cold-blooded murder. . . .

Someone Is Bleeding--Dave Newton has fallen hard for Peggy, a leggy blonde with a lurid past and a heartbreaking smile. But as bloody corpses begin to litter his path, Dave is forced to confront the terrifying possibility that the woman he loves is a deranged killer!

Fury on Sunday--In the wee hours of one fateful Sunday morning, a homicidal maniac embarks on a rampage of terror and violence that threatens everyone who crosses his path, culminating in a deadly confrontation in a Manhattan apartment building.

Ride the Nightmare--Chris and Helen had the perfect suburban life--until Helen discovers her husband's guilty secret. Overnight, their peaceful existence descends into a vortex of fear and brutality that may cost them the life of their only child!

Review quote

"Perhaps no author living is as responsible for chilling a generation with tantalizing nightmare visions . . . ." --The New York Times

"Crime fiction at its toughest: booze, guns, knives, chases, aberrant psychology, blackmail, icepick murders, femmes fatales, sinister psychos, brutish thugs, drunks, nymphos, homicide dicks, and a generous helping of sweat." --Matthew R. Bradley from the Introduction to Noir

"The author who influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson." --Stephen King

"Matheson is the master of paranoia--pitting a single man against unknown horrors and examining his every slow twist in the wind." --San Jose Mercury News

"His stories not only entertain, but touch the mind and heart." --Dean Koontz
