Author Info
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.
From the Publisher
Annotation Made into a film by Sam Peckinpah, this is the underworld chronicle of Carter "Doc" McCoy, robber, con man, murderer and loving husband.
First Line Carter "Doc" McCoy had left a morning call for six o'clock, and he was reaching for the telephone the moment the night clerk rang.
Editors Note Doc McCoy knows everything there is to know about pulling off the perfect bank job. But there are some things he has forgotten--such as a partner who is not only treacherous but insane and a wife who is still an amateur. Worst of all, McCoy has forgotten that when the crime is big and bloody enough, there is no such thing as a clean getaway.
Editors Note 3 Doc McCoy's bank robbery is a success, but his getaway is complicated by a double-crossing accomplice
