Pop. 1280

Jim Thompson


Now available for the first time in an illustrated hardcover edition with a new introduction by esteemed horror writer Laird Barron. As high sheriff of Potts County, Nick Corey spends most of his time eating, sleeping and avoiding trouble. If only people, especially some troublesome pimps, his foul-tempered wife, and his half-witted brother-in-law, would stop pushing him around. Because when Nick is pushed, he begins to kill, or to make others do his killing for him! This edition features color and black & white artwork, reproductions of old paperback covers and film posters, and is signed by Laird Barron, Patrick Loehr, and Paul Wedlake. Bound in full black cloth and a gorgeous dustjacket.
