The Last of Philip Banter

The 1947 cult classic from acclaimed crime writer John Franklin Bardin, now available for the first time in eBook edition.

Philip Banter is a little too fond of drink, and his marriage isn’t what it should be. He’s also troubled by a penchant for forgetting. That doesn’t mean he’s losing his mind.

Then Philip finds a manuscript entitled “Confession” in his office. He reads about a surprise dinner party his wife held, of the conversation that took place, and —to his horror—of his own infidelity. But the “confession” turns out to be a prophecy, accurate in almost every detail.

Is he the victim of a conspiracy to drive him mad, or did he type the manuscript himself? As the “confession” grows lengthier and more destructive, can he find the willpower to resist its terrifying inevitability?
