What to expect

A fascinating portrait of mid-1950s America by the iconic Charles Beaumont

He was a leader of men, but he was evil. He was a stranger, but he brought lust and love, rape and hate to this quiet southern town. He was … the intruder.

It was a sleepy southern town with nice folks and good schools. Then the intruder arrived from the North. With him came trouble, fear, and hate so vicious it could turn neighbor against neighbor, child against child, white against black—and destroy them all.

“Striking in its timeliness…A swift and powerful novel…Compelling.”

New York Herald Tribune

The Intruder hits with the impact of a Magnum slug…From the beginning to the pounding climax, it carries the reader from chapter to chapter with the stinging shock of successive slaps in the face.”

Los Angeles Herald Express

“Beaumont always knows exactly which information to provide to the reader, and what to withhold, in order to create maximum disquiet.”
