A collection of stories, both early and late, that show how James
M. Cain made his name
There is a hungry tiger loose in the house, and that is not good
news for anyone. A jealous husband let the animal out of his cage
hoping he would eat his wife alive, but tigers aren't used to
taking orders. This jungle cat will get his meal, and he doesn't
care where it comes from.
"The Baby in the Icebox" begins with a murdered wildcat and ends
with a dead human--and what comes in between is some of the most
striking prose James M. Cain ever put to paper. It is one of the
first stories this master of crime fiction ever wrote, and it shows
all the hallmarks of the novels that would later make him
famous--namely "Double Indemnity" and "The Postman Always Rings
Twice." The tales in this collection are short, but Cain never
needed more than a few pages to thrill.
