Chaze's long-lost classic, a legend among noir buffs, is back in print for the first time in nearly half a century. The one book Black Lizard never published, it's the dream-like tale of a man after a jailbreak, who meets up with the woman of his dreams... and his nightmares. Phenomenal work of the period, ranking with the best efforts of Thompson, Woolrich, Goodis et al.

About the Author:

ELLIOTT CHAZE (1915-1990) was an old-school newspaper man who began his journalism career with the New Orleans bureau of the Associated Press shortly before Pearl Harbor. He worked for a time for AP's Denver office after paratrooper service in WWII, and then migrated south to Mississippi where he spent twenty years as a reporter and award-winning columnist. He is the author of several novels.

Review:

An astonishingly well written literary novel that just happened to be about (or roundabout) a crime. --Oxford American

The protagonist, ex-convict Tim Sunblade, is a quintessential antihero, an unrepentant bastard who executes a daring armed-car robbery in Colorado with the help of a call girl, Virginia, whom he picked up in a backwoods Mississippi motel. The details of the crime and its aftermath are vividly described, and the love-hate relationship between Sunblade and the woman and the demons in both that lead to their downfall are masterpieces of dark-side character development. --Bill Pronzini, Mystery File
