it was amazing

Jim Thompson wrote about a lot of sociopaths, but the narrator of "Pop. 1280" is the tops--a cold-blooded sheriff who represents himself as a dumb, aw-shucks good old boy to his townspeople, to the reader, and to himself, even as he plots and does horrible things. By the time you get to the end, you need a shower.
