One of the bleakest--and one of the best--noirs ever.

I'm a fan of Thompson's work, and this is a good one, all right.

I will never forget the ending of this one. Wow.

I think it was Donald Westlake who observed, a Jim Thompson novel ends when all the characters have gone to Hell.

1984. I remember when the first Black Lizard titles showed up at Brentano's. Thirty+ years ago, hard to believe.

Seems like yesterday.

I kinda expected you to do the original Lion Books covers.

I'm not angry, just disappointed.

I've had several requests for those, so they're coming right up.
