Published as part of the Crime Masterworks series, this reissue showcases one of Thompson's greatest criminal treasues. (GOOD BOOK GUIDE)
One of a series of crime masterworks, past classics that have clearly stood the test of time and are being re-issued... Thompson's work is often categorised as hard- boiled and violent but there's a depth to it that takes it beyond pulp fiction. After Dark, My Sweet is well worth seeking out. (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS)
'This celebrated pulp thriller, brought to a new audience courtesy of Orion's splendid Crime Masterworks series, features three of his most memorable creations... Thompson portrays his people with light and shade and the ending is one that will linger in many readers' memories.' (Martin Edwards TANGLED WEB)
'This is a classic 1950s pulp fiction from a master of the genre...Call him hard-boiled or noir as you will, Thompson is at heart simply a fine writer, and a master of the art of exposing the frailty of the human psyche.' (Ian Morson TANGLED WEB) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
'A blisteringly imaginative crime novelist...violent, amoral, terse and fast-moving...a classic American novelist' Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description
