A hypnotic mystery. A tale of psychological horror. A genre-defying classic now available for the first time in eBook edition. "Doctor, I'm losing my mind." So begins John Franklin Bardin's bold and unconventional crime thriller in which psychiatrist George Matthews' attempts to help his patient lead to a dead-end world of amnesia and social outcasts. The Deadly Percheron is at once a murder mystery, poignant love story and, most importantly, an unsettling and hallucinatory dark voyage into memory, madness, torture, and despair.
