Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jim Nisbet's cult classic Lethal Injection, one of the first Black Lizard Books originals, has been out of print in the United States for an unforgivably long time (though it lives on in France and Germany, where Nisbet has become a true phenomenon). Overlook is remedying that with this paperback- the first of nine publications that will make up a Nisbet revolution.

It's about as noir as you can get. In a bleak Texas prison Royce, an alcoholic doctor administers Bobby Mencken's last "high," convinced that the convicted killer was innocent. When Royce's marriage crumbles he takes off for Dallas to search for the real killer.

Of Nisbet, Germany's Die Welt wrote, "Neither Norman Mailer nor Truman Capote has in their writing been able to produce such an intensity as Nisbet has achieved."

With sharp humor and a poet's ear for language, Nisbet's world may be bleak, but it is frighteningly real. Overlook is proud to bring him to a new generation of readers.

Synopsis:

Nesbit's gritty noir cult classic is now back in print. In a bleak Texas prison, Royce, an alcoholic doctor, administers Bobby Mencken's last high, convinced that the convicted killer was innocent. When Royce's marriage crumbles, he takes off in search of the real killer.
