The Getaway

Classic crime novel by acclaimed author Jim Thompson - ´the best suspense writer going, bar none´ NEW YORK TIMES

The story of a bank robbery and its aftermath, of cross and double-cross, told with the unflinching eye of America´s greatest crime writer.

But with a partner like Rudy Torrento, who is not only treacherous but insane, and a wife who is still an amateur, McCoy has forgotten something: when the crime is big and bloody enough, there is no such thing as a clean getaway.
