Wait Until Dark

By  Frederick Knott

   A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino have traced the location of a mysterious doll to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sewn inside the doll are several grams of heroin. When a woman is murdered, the situation becomes more urgent. Roat and his ex-convicts convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the murder, and the doll is the key to his innocence. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues and Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules.
