Publisher's Summary

Two teenagers fresh out of stir set their sights on what looks like easy money in Dolores Hitchens' Fools' Gold (1958) - and get a painful education in how quickly and drastically a simple plan can spin out of control. The basis for Jean-Luc Godard's film Band of Outsiders, Fools' Gold is a sharply told tale distinguished by its nuanced portrait of a sheltered young woman who becomes a reluctant accomplice and fugitive. This classic novel is one of eight works included in The Library of America's two-volume edition Women Crime Writers: Eight Suspense Novels of the 1940s & '50s, edited by Sarah Weinman.
