Dennis, Robert C. - The Sweat Of Fear

London, Gollancz, 1973. First edition. Architect Paul Reeder is having blinding headaches despite receiving a clean bill of health.  Soon he starts having visions, then outright hallucinations.  He finds the road that leads to the house of his sinister seeings and is drawn into a particularly unpleasant murder.  Very much of its time, recalling the Manson killings.  Fine in fine DJ with slight fading to the dust jacket spine. $20.00.
