really liked it

Jim Thompson's work continues to enthrall. I'm looking forward to seeing the filmed versions of this book, particularly the one done by Sam Peckinpah. Gritty, absorbing and uncompromising. The final montage of El Rey's hellish kingdom will stay with me for a very long time. If they ever adapt it again, my vote's in for Viggo as Doc.
