Knock 3-1-2

“Fredric Brown tops himself again,” says the Los Angeles Mirror-News of this taut, dramatic novel of one night when a desperate rapist-killer stalked a town, ten hours of panic and terror that turned the night into a nightmare. For as the net tightened around the killer more and more, people became entangled in a chain of events that ended in an explosion of maniacal savagery. 

Knock 3-1-2 is widely considered to be one of Fredric Brown’s best suspense novels, and is rarely reprinted. This edition features a new introduction by Jack Seabrook, a color cover by legendary cover artist Ron Lesser, and is signed by both Seabrook and Lesser. 

Full color dustjacket with black Brillianta cloth, ribbon marker. Limited to just 200 signed and numbered copies.

The Wench Is Dead

“I’m called Howie, or The Professor. I’m on Skid Row in Los Angeles because I want to know what it’s like to be a bum, from the inside. But I didn’t know I’d fall for a part-time hustler named Billie the Kid. I didn’t know I’d get mixed up in two killings, and that the cops would pin them on me...”

The Lenient Beast

“The Mark of the Beast is upon me, and the Beast is Mercy. Until the Mark is taken away, I must perform my function as the giver of God’s greatest gift of Mercy — death and surcease to those for whom life seems to be agony.” 

Six people already had been relieved of the burden of life; six times John Medley had felt peace. On the police blotter six brutal murders were stamped unsolved.
