The Deadly Percheron Free read å 6 “The opening chapter defies description Imagine one of those 1930s screwball comedies with the crazy situations but substitute malevolence for humor” Karl Edward Wagner?. Utterly utterly brilliant I completely devoured this book and now I want to find by the same author It kept me guessing right until the very end I suppose the plot is convoluted and the repeated bouts of amnesia may seem to be a little unbelievable but I was so caught up in the action that I willingly suspended disbelief For most of the novel I was unsure as to whether George Matthews or John Brown was an entirely reliable narrator but that was fully resolved in the end Fabulous stuff

review The Deadly PercheronThe Deadly Percheron

The Deadly Percheron Free read å 6 ?“Doctor I’m losing my mind” So begins John Franklin Bardin’s unconventional crime thriller in which a psychiatrist's attempts to help his patient lead to a dead end. The Brits rediscovery of this book in the 1970s was based on its psychological elements and that is how it comes to us now as an early psychological crime novel The edition depicted here not my own features a Salvador Dali painting on the covers that is clearly intended to suggest a certain surreal uality to it all One internet reviewer tells us the book is a deadly serious excursion into identity formation and the psychology of guilt How such a book was overlooked to begin with is the real mystery Unfortunately the solution to that mystery isn t very satisfying the book so described and the book in your hand are two entirely different entities The first thing you realize as you begin to read the book opens with a psychiatrist whose new patient claims to be working for leprechauns is that you re drawn in by the mystery Like George Matthews the psychiatrist you don t for a minute believe the leprechaun story but you want to know what it means And like any good mystery you don t find out until the last page But in between in spite of the weird addition of percheron horses left at murder scenes amnesia and torture that s what keeps you reading wanting to know how it all fits together In the real world Not in some netherworld of the mind This is because we know and never doubt that George is sane Bardin never suggests otherwise I applaud Bardin for providing us an explanation of George s amnesia that goes beyond a simple blow to the head but Bardin uses neither the amnesia nor its cause to introduce doubt about the man s perceptions Instead he uses them to prolong and to deepen the mystery In his Introduction to The John Franklin Bardin Omnibus Julian Symons claims that George fears he is going mad He doesn t He really doesn t And this is the key to the book s reevaluation if the reader brings this perception to the work then the whole thing becomes a psychological game with reality in the balance But it s a game the reader must play with himself for Bardin does nothing to encourage it But for all that this is a good book that deserved rediscovery The mystery is intriguing and the hero s journey to the truth is certainly an unusual and painful one Just don t believe the hype
