A classic crime novel from 'the best suspense writer going, bar none' New York Times Nick Corey likes being the high sheriff of Potts County. But Nick has a few problems that he needs to deal with: like his loveless marriage, the pimps who torment him, the honest man who is running against him in the upcoming elections and the women who adore him. And it turns out that Nick isn't anything like as amiable, easy-going or as slow as he seems. He's as sly, brutal and corrupt as they come.

Recensioner i media

I don't read many books twice but Jim Thompson novels - due to their concise, dirty power, their relentless violence and purity - can always draw me in for a second time. Some of the most psychological crime writing ever done. I love James M Cain and Elmore Leonard but Jim Thompson holds a special place in my heart. -- Bruce Springsteen

Among his many novels are THE KILLER INSIDE ME, THE GRIFTERS, THE GETAWAY and AFTER DARK, MY SWEET. He also wrote two screenplays (for the Stanley Kubrick films THE KILLING and PATHS OF GLORY). pop. 1280 was an acclaimed French film under the title COUP DE TORCHON.
