Murder at the Bijou

203 štampane stranice
Murder at the Bijou (originally titled Nothing More Than Murder) is noir master Jim Thompson’s dizzying tale of deception, adultery, revenge, arson, and cold-blooded murder in Smalltown, U.S.A., Thompson’s favorite setting. In this novel, Thompson’s first major success as a pulp fiction writer, Joe Wilmot, trying to go straight after a stretch in the pen, finds a movie house in a small crossroads that can use a helping hand and someone with half a brain for business. The theater’s owner, Elizabeth, isn’t the smartest operator around – or is she? Joe and the plain Jane Elizabeth decide maybe it would be better for business if they got married. Why not? And then Carol shows up, a bit stale in the eye candy department but ready and willing to serve – in every way.

They’ve got insurance coverage on the movie house; their lives would all be better if the place maybe had an accident, a little fire. But things can go very wrong. And in Murder at the Bijou they do.

Fans of Jim Thompson will recognize the terse dialogue, plot twists and double-crosses, and a belief that nothing in the world in good, all of which makes Stephen King say that Jim Thompson is “My favorite crime novelist – often imitated but never duplicated.”
