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.
