Root of His Evil

Root of His Evil Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James M. Cain, author of the classic crime novels The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, and Serenade, here presents Carrie Selden and Grant Harris as the featured players. The Root of His Evil is a novel about a modern Cinderella much in the mold of Cain's own Mildred Pierce. Author Harlan Ellison has gone so far as to call Carrie and Mildred "sisters," and says: "If you like Cain you won't feel at all cheated to spend a while with Carrie Selden."

Review:

"Nobody else has ever quite pulled it off the way Cain does, not Hemingway, not even Raymond Chandler." Tom Wolfe

Review:

"Cain can get down to...greed and sex in fewer words than any writer we know." New York Times
