Celebrating the work of Jim Thompson on his bday.
Jim Thompson was born on September 27, 1906. On August 5, 2014, we released all 25 of his books in trade paperback. Happy belated birthday to the king of hardboiled crime fiction.
The Special Trials Unit in the DA’s office had a unique way of working because prosecutors in that unit really do go out in the field with the detectives and work up the case from the ground up. Most prosecutors don’t do that. I’ve had people write to me saying they thought it was cool that Rachel was out with Bailey (the detective) a lot, but they didn’t think that was real. Well, it is!
Critically celebrated novelist Scott Spencer—writing as Chase Novak—delivers a Rosemary’s Baby-like novel of gothic horror, set against the backdrop of modern-day Upper East Side Manhattan.

“It was a lot of fun to see this well-known cover reincarnated for a new edition. We cleaned up the type a bit and did a fairly modern design for the back cover. Paul’s image has been adapted many different ways over the years, and it was nice to see it return to its original composition. A stark white background, bold type and the uneasy sense that you must read this book.”
