Nightfall (8/10) / by Kyle Vernier


Nightfall was another blind read. Not totally blind because this edition was published by Black Lizard, who publish all the Jim Thompson reprints I've read. They are like the Numero Group of crime novels. 

Anyhow, Nightfall is very good. It is sort of a hunted man/ wrong man story about a commercial artist unwittingly wrapped up in the aftermath of a bank robbery. It has a very cinematic feel. Which makes sense since David Goodis was a screen and television writer in addition to writing crime novels.
