Read full description of the books:
I backed toward the door. I thought, Oh, how I hate you! HOW I HATE YOU! I hate you so much that - that - ! I hate you, hate you, hate you! -- It didn't occur to me until later that I must have said what I was thinking. That I'd actually yelled it at him.
I've just found my new favourite Thompson noir. Reading this story got better and better all the time. The story is constructed and built up beautifully. There is a continuous red line through it AND side stories to get you confused. Hey, I was pretty confused even at the very end but it only strenghtened my desire to read this story again.
Best thing about the style how it was written is that every chapter is written from the perspective of another character. They all entwine together, some of them have more to tell than others but not necessarily without the reader's deductions between what they've already read and what is being read at the moment.
This is a reading experience I'm already looking forward to, again!

James Myers Thompson was a United States writer of novels, short stories and screenplays, largely in the hardboiled style of crime fiction.
Thompson wrote more than thirty novels, the majority of which were original paperback publications by pulp fiction houses, from the late-1940s through mid-1950s. Despite some positive critical notice, notably by Anthony Boucher in the New York Times, he was little-recognized in his lifetime. Only after death did Thompson's literary stature grow, when in the late 1980s, several novels were re-published in the Black Lizard series of re-discovered crime fiction.
Thompson's writing culminated in a few of his best-regarded works: The Killer Inside Me, Savage Night, A Hell of a Woman and Pop. 1280. In these works, Thompson turned the derided pulp genre into literature and art, featuring unreliable narrators, odd structure, and surrealism.
The writer R.V. Cassills has suggested that of all pulp fiction, Thompson's was the rawest and most harrowing; that neither Dashiell Hammett nor Raymond Chandler nor even Horace McCoy, author of the bleak They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, ever "wrote a book within miles of Thompson".  Similarly, in the introduction to Now and on Earth, Stephen King says he most admires Thompson's work because "The guy was over the top. The guy was absolutely over the top. Big Jim didn't know the meaning of the word stop. There are three brave lets inherent in the forgoing: he let himself see everything, he let himself write it down, then he let himself publish it."
Thompson admired Fyodor Dostoevsky and was nicknamed "Dimestore Dostoevsky" by writer Geoffrey O'Brien. Film director Stephen Frears, who directed an adaptation of Thompson's The Grifters as 1990's The Grifters, also identified elements of Greek tragedy in his themes.
