'[A] fine idea for a series... They already have a superb noir backlist.. but adding Philip K Dick's Minority Report and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? improves the mix.' (SCOTSMAN)

THE AUTHOR
James M. Cain was born in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1892. Having served in the US Army in World War 1, he became a journalist in Baltimore and New York in the 1920's. He later worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood. Cain died in 1977.

From the Back Cover

Passion turns to deception – and murder. The perfect murder planned by two lovers who hope to cash in an insurance policy that pays double indemnity.

Like Chandler and Hammett, Cain wrote about crime, but unlike them he wrote from the point of view of the criminal and with a sense of bitter realism that is entirely his own. His first novel, 'The Postman Always Rings Twice', became an immediate bestseller.
