- Full Description
Jim Thompson's brutal and wildly popular novel comes to life in this graphic noir-novel! In The Killer Inside Me, Thompson went where few have dared, giving us a pitch-black glimpse into the mind of the American serial killer years before Charles Manson, John Wayne Gacy, and Brett Easton Ellis' American Psycho, in the novel that will forever be known as the master performance of one of the greatest crime novelists of all time. Here's a cop who brutally murders hookers and anyone else who gets in his way...
Stephen King provides a long, 4 page introduction titled "Warning! Warning! Hitchhikers may be escaped lunatics!" He puts this novel, written in 1952, into perspective as he places it into the world of the 1950s, a world of post-war optimism and Ozzie and Harriet. And he talks about Jim Thompson's other novels, as well as the world of noir detective novels in these early days of lurid paperback novels.
Adult themes and extreme violence.
