Reissue of a true classic - 'One of the toughest crime novels ever' (Newsweek). Roy Dillon is young, good-looking and devastatingly charming. He's also a completely amoral con man. Lily, his mother, works for the mob. Moira Langtry, Roy's mistress, is always looking for the main chance, and so is Carol Roberg, the nurse brought in to look after Roy when a bad choice of mark means he has an unfortunate encounter with a baseball bat and a bad case of internal bleeding. Together they make up a perverse quadrangle of love and greed in a coruscating novel of corruption.

Trots Jim Thompsons precisa och slagkraftiga prosa r filmatiseringen av The Grifters ett str vassare. Det finns inte en textrad som kan konkurrera med Angelica Hustons magnifika mater familias, hos vilken sjlvbevarelsedriften har hgre prioritet n besvrande modersknslor.
