About the book:

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)These three classics from the master of the noir novel, along with five otherwise unavailable short stories, are electric with the taut narrative voice, the suspense, and the explosive violence and eroticism that were James M. Cains indelible hallmarks.The Postman Always Rings Twice, Cains first novelthe subject of an obscenity trial in Boston, the inspiration for Camuss The Strangeris the fever-pitched tale of a drifter who stumbles into a job, into an erotic obsession, and into a murder. Double Indemnitywhich followed Postman so quickly, Cains readers hardly had a chance to catch their breathis a tersely narrated story of blind passion, duplicity, and, of course, murder. Mildred Pierce, a work of acute psychological observation and devastating emotional violence, is the tale of a woman with a taste for shiftless men and an unreasoned devotion to her monstrous daughter. All three novels were immortalized in classic Hollywood films. Also included here are five masterful storiesPastorale, The Baby in the Icebox, Dead Man, Brush Fire, The Girl in the Stormthat have been out of print for decades.
