James M. Cain is an internationally acclaimed American novelist whose lurid, violent, sexually charged and relentlessly paced melodramas about crime and desperation epitomised the so-called 'hard-boiled' school of writing that flourished in the United States in the 1930s and ’40s.

Cain’s work has sold millions of copies and he is rightly lauded as one of the American literary greats.
