Randolph "Dilda" Carter

A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

A Fine Read

Phantom Lady - Cornell Woolrich, Barry N. Malzberg, Matt Mahurin

Not as good as some of Cornell Woolrich's other novels but still well above the herd. Typically outrageous plot that we actually don't care much about as long as it carries the suspense. Woolrich supplies the usual twist and doesn't telegraph it too early. Full of metaphor and simile like all good noir books are (that's one of the reasons we like them).

 

A good read.
