9780099572787: Laura (Vintage Classics)

In the doorway of an elegant New York apartment, blood seeps over silk negligee, over polished wood floors and plush carpet: a beautiful young woman lies dead, her face disfigured by a single gun shot.

But who was Laura? What power did she hold over the very different men in her life? How does her portrait bewitch even Mark McPherson, the hard-bitten detective assigned to find her murderer?

One stormy night, Mark's investigation takes an unexpected turn...

Review:

"Noir in a nutshell" (Anthony Lane New Yorker)

"A sleek, saturnine thriller" ( Independent)

"A top-drawer mystery" ( New York Times)

"The novel has three great strengths. The first is Waldo Lydecker, the vain, deliciously nasty newspaper columnist ...Its second strength is an ingenious plot twist ...The third is Caspary's having set a noirish crime story in the Manhattan haute monde of ad agencies, fancy restaurants and society folk as odious as they are self-satisfied" ( Washington Post)

"Twists and turns give the plot its space, and hard-bitten cop Mark McPherson its hero" (Lesley McDowell Sunday Herald)

Book Description:

The classic mystery story behind the famous film noir: Laura will enthall you.
