 yes. in Rendezvou in Black the same theme is carried out. Johnny Marr loses the love of his life and sets out for revenge on all the people that contributed to dororthy's death. below is a synopses of the book that i found online. the plot of the story is not too plausable in reality but i think this was the first woolrich story i ever read and i found it chilling.

 On a mild midwestern night in the early 1940s, Johnny Marr leans against a drugstore wall. He's waiting for Dorothy, his fiancee, and tonight is the last night they'll be meeting here, for it's May 31st, and June 1st marks their wedding day. But she's late, and Johnny soon learns of a horrible accident - an accident involving a group of drunken men, a low-flying charter plane, and an empty liquor bottle. In one short moment Johnny loses all that matters to him and his life is shattered. He vows to take from these men exactly what they took from him. After years of planning, Johnny begins his quest for revenge, and on May 31st of each year - always on May 31st - wives, lovers, and daughters are suddenly no longer safe.
