Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic by Stark, the celebrated alter ego of MWA Grandmaster Westlake, tells the story of professional thief Alan Grofield, who turns down a heist, then has to defend himself and his wife against the attacks of a fellow thief he spurned.

Review:

"Classic noir fiction offers a dark, violent world devoid of mercy or sentiment. Take, for example, the closing lines of Mickey Spillane's 1948 'I, the Jury,' when Mike Hammer gut-shoots the woman who killed his Army buddy. 'How c-could you?' she gasps, and Hammer replies, just before she dies, 'It was easy.' That's pure, down-and-dirty noir, and there are those of us who love it, but noir continues...

Synopsis:

When theater owner and professional thief Alan Grofield refuses to help Andrew Myers knock over a brewery, he must protect his family from this angry criminal who vows to get revenge. Reprint.
