Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Roy DIllon seems too handsome and well-mannered to be a professional con man. Lilly Dillon looks too young--and loves Roy a little too intensely--to be taken for his mother.

Review:

"Read Jim Thompson and take a tour of hell." The New Republic

Review:

"Jim Thompson is the best suspense writer going, bar none." The New York Times
