Roy Huggins, The Double Take, rpt. New York: Pocket, 1959 (original 1946), p. 20:

"Then I heard it. The quiet shush of leather on the wet walk, growing suddenly hurried and confused as I turned. Something glinted brightly and came down across my head. I went down on my hands and knees. Nausea pulsed upward and pounded at my throat, and I pulled myself up and my feet slipped on the wet pavement. I heard a gentle, sighing sound and light suddenly broke into bright fragments behind my eyes. Then there was only darkness stretching away endlessly."

Sounds familiar.
