From the Publisher:
William Collins is very handsome, very polite, and very friendly. His is also dangerous when aroused. Now Collins, a one-time boxer with a lethal "accident" in his past, has broken out of his fourth mental institution and met up with an affable con man and a highly arousing woman, whose plans for him include kidnapping, murder, and much, much worse.Jim Thompson created a tour de force of spiraling paranoia and violence as shattering as it is inevitable. It is now the basis for an acclaimed new film.
Annotation:
William Collins, ex-boxer, had a lethal "accident" in the ring years ago. Having escaped his fourth mental institution, he meets a friendly con man and a stunning woman who have some unsavory plans for him.
Author Bio
Jim Thompson
Jim Thompson always bragged that he was born in a prison. Actually, he was born in an apartment above the prison, in a town where his father was sheriff. Thompson sold his first short story to "True Detective" when he was just 14, and continued writing for the rest of his life. He is known for his dark and violent vision, and his cynical view of human nature. Although he had limited commercial success in his lifetime, the popularity of his books soared in the years after his death, and several of his books, including "The Grifters", "The Getaway" and "After Dark, My Sweet", became major motion pictures.
