Dany Longo is blonde, beautiful, disturbed, passionate - and nearsighted. As she speeds through the South of France in a purloined Thunderbird on an errand for her employer and his wife, no-one - including Dany herself - knows where she is headed, or why she is going there. Nightmarish encounters with strangers who apparently recognise her, an assault in the rest-room at a service station, an interlude with an enigmatic hitchhiker and the discovery of a body in the boot of the car all combine to make 'The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun' the classic noir suspense novel. It won the 1966 Prix d'Honneur in France, and the 1968 Crime Writer's Association Silver Dagger.
