Synopsis: Two classic, obsessive noir novels from the late 1950s and early 60s. "Gil Brewer is the premier architect of the Gold Medal noir."--Jack O'Connell, author of Word Made Flesh.

About the Author: Gil Brewer was born Nov. 20, 1922 in Canandaigua, NY. After leaving the army at the end of WWII, he joined his family who had settled in St. Petersburg, Florida. There he met Verlaine in 1947 and married her soon after. Brewer started by writing serious novels, but soon turned to paperback originals after a sale to Gold Medal Books in 1950. At his height, he was a brilliant writer of sharply defined noir thrillers, usually involving a male protagonist driven to crime by the sexual allure of a young siren. But unwilling to promote himself, his career took a turn for the worse after a mental breakdown, and a long decline into alcoholism. Brewer died on Jan. 9, 1983.

Book Description Stark House Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. WILD TO POSSESS Lew Brookbank is running from his grief. His wife had left him for another man, and he had discovered them together--murdered. Drowning himself in gin, one night he stumbles across a parked car where a man and a woman are plotting the kidnapping and murder of the man s wife. At first he thinks he should turn them in, but there is some real money involved here, and he makes the liquor-fueled decision to follow them and work a double-cross of his own. But Lew doesn t figure on Clarkson, brother of his dead wife s lover. Clarkson wants to bring him back to pay for the death of his brother. But there s no turning back on the plan now--Lew has got to see this one through to the end. A TASTE FOR SIN Jim Phalen is obsessed with Felice. He can t get enough of her wild ways, her wicked charms. She is hot like no woman he has ever met before. They re quite a pair. Unfortunately, Felice is married to bank manager George Anderson. But Felice has a plan--to kill her husband one night while he works at the bank and steal all the money. Jim thinks the idea is crazy. But the more he figures it, the more he thinks that it just might work. He knows he had to have Felice. Just the thought of her drives him nuts. But can he create the perfect plan to possess her, and steal the money, too? It s crazy alright--but it just might work. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781933586106
