Mike Sloan is a jewel thief who has tired of being doggedly pursued by a cop. So he beds the cop's wife and sets her up to take the fall for his next heist. And that's only the beginning of the brutal, cat-and-mouse game, between cop and criminal, in this noir classic.
"The book has a promising premise. It's revenge to the nth degree—cuckold the cop, further humiliate him by succeeding with the crime, then railroad his wife to prison. We're talking cruel. It's probably worth taking the plunge." Pulp International
