Tonight's dark rediscovery is Night Has a Thousand Eyes by Cornell Woolrich

 

 

Originally published in 1945 (under the pen name George Hopley), this tale concerning the race against time to stop a psychic's prediction of a man's seemingly impossible demise is considered to be Woolrich's masterpiece, subtly weaving the supernatural with darkest noir into a powerfully bleak novel of creeping dread and inevitable fate.

 

In the words of Ray Bradbury "Cornell Woolrich deserves to be discovered and rediscovered by each generation"

 

You can't ask for a better recommendation than that.

 

Trivia Tidbit: Alfred Hitchcock's classic film Rear Window was based on Woolrich's short story "It Had to Be Murder".
