Comments

The second novel by the by the celebrated French crime fiction duo. The novel centers around an inventor who, while determined to develop the perfect lightbulb, is blinded during a freak lab accident and suffers a nervous breakdown. Though he is convinced he is going mad, it soon becomes apparent that it is a deliberate attempt by his wife, partner, and brother. Basis for the 1960 British thriller directed by David Eady, and starring John Gregson, Mai Zetterling, and John Ireland. Uncommon in the first edition, and the only copy of this title we have seen or handled signed by the authors.
