They say, no good deed goes unpunished, and James Vanning is living proof of this maxim when he stops to helps three men who have smashed up their car in the mountains of Colorado. This single act of kindness implicates him in a murder and a bank robbery to the tune of $300,000. Somehow he evades his captors and makes off with the dough. Now with the robbers are on his tail, Vanning would gladly give the money back except he can't quite remember where he left it. In this fast-paced novel David Goodis exhibits all the stylistic characteristics that make him one of the finest noir novelists.
"An almost perfect book, spare, balanced, and inexplicably moving." (Geoffrey O'Brien, Editor-in-Chief, Library of America)
