The Freak Show Murders

(1987)
Fredric Brown Pulp Detective Series, Vol. 5
A novel by

 
First published in 1943, THE FREAKSHOW MURDERS is a classic, but long-neglected, 9-chapter mystery novella by the king of twisted crime fiction, Fredric Brown. Set in the shadowy confines of a travelling carnival, complete with its own freaks, waxworks and grifters, Brown's story collides the clandestine world of Tod Browning's film Freaks with elements of violent murder, robbery and suspense to forge a gripping genre piece shot through with disquiet and the grotesque. This new edition of THE FREAKSHOW MURDERS also includes Brown's 6-part 1942 story A CAT FROM SIAM, a spiralling descent into bloody murder, psychosis, mind control and hallucination.
