Dark and atmospheric yet somewhat dated. Woolrich is a sadly forgotten writer considering his tremendous turnout of short stories and novels. One of his books was one of the 5 chosen by The American Library in their collection called American Noir of the 30s & 40s. That book is the strange I Married a Dead Man, a hard one to put down. Another one of his creations was the basis for one of Alfred Hitchcock's most famous movies, Rear Window. The Black Curtain was worth the time since it was less than 200 pages but unless you like writing of this type, I'd suggest some of his other creations especially the aforementioned I Married a Dead Man.
