A hypnotic mystery. A tale of psychological horror. A genre-defying classic now available for the first time in eBook edition.
"Doctor, I'm losing my mind." So begins John Franklin Bardin's bold and unconventional crime thriller in which psychiatrist George Matthews' attempts to help his patient lead to a dead-end world of amnesia and social outcasts. The Deadly Percheron is at once a murder mystery, poignant love story and, most importantly, an unsettling and hallucinatory dark voyage into memory, madness, torture, and despair.
“It is a story of murder and mayhem and hideous torture— one which will hold your attention to the last, even though you cannot possibly believe that such things could happen here in little old New York.” —The New York Times, June 2, 1946
