    From its launch in 1920 until its demise in 1951, the magazine Black Mask published pulp crime fiction. The first hard-boiled detective stories appeared on its pages. Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, Erle Stanley Gardner and John D. MacDonald got their start in Black Mask. The urban crime stories that appeared in Black Mask helped to shape American culture. Modern computer games, films, and television are rooted in the fiction popularized by "the seminal and venerated mystery pulp magazine" (Booklist).

    In Woolrich's iconic tale, Detective Tom Shawn saves a lovely young woman from a suicide attempt one night, and later hears her story. She is in despair because the death of her wealthy father has been predicted by a confidence man seemingly gifted with the power of clairvoyance; a man whose predictions have unerringly aided her father in his business many times before. Shawn and a squad of detectives investigate this dire prediction and try to avert the millionaire businessman from meeting his ordained end at the stroke of midnight.

    An Mord glaubt auch Hal Jeffries, der wegen eines eingegipsten Beines zu Bewegungsunfähigkeit und Langeweile verdammt in seinem brütend heißen Hinterhof-Apartment festsitzt. In Ermangelung anderer Unterhaltung (Bücher sind nicht seine Sache) verlegt er sich aufs Beobachten. Der Blick in die Wohnungen gegenüber ist wie Kino: Auf dem Programm stehen Slapstick, Drama - und Mord. Gesehen hat "Jeff" das Verbrechen allerdings nicht. Beweise liegen schon gar nicht vor.
