Read full description of the books:
Clinton Brown es inteligente, bien parecido y el mejor encargado de reescribir material del Pacific City Courier. Su mujer, de la que está separado, todavía está enamorada de él, al igual que una atractiva y adinerada viuda que hará cualquier cosa para que sea feliz. Pero a Brown le falta algo, una cosa sin la que es posible ser feliz —no hay posibilidad de nada, si exceptuamos el alcohol y el tener que castigar a cualquier estúpido que trate de quitarle su soledad—. La carencia de Clinton Brown puede ser motivo suficiente para inducirle al asesinato.
¿Es Brown un asesino o la víctima de un sádico embuste? Y, si él es inocente, ¿por qué se empeña en que lo atrapen? Tortuosamente trazado, con un terrible conocimiento de la psicología de la rabia y de la culpa, El asesino burlón es una muestra más de la maestría de Jim Thompson dentro del género del crimen.

James Myers Thompson was a United States writer of novels, short stories and screenplays, largely in the hardboiled style of crime fiction.
Thompson wrote more than thirty novels, the majority of which were original paperback publications by pulp fiction houses, from the late-1940s through mid-1950s. Despite some positive critical notice, notably by Anthony Boucher in the New York Times, he was little-recognized in his lifetime. Only after death did Thompson's literary stature grow, when in the late 1980s, several novels were re-published in the Black Lizard series of re-discovered crime fiction.
Thompson's writing culminated in a few of his best-regarded works: The Killer Inside Me, Savage Night, A Hell of a Woman and Pop. 1280. In these works, Thompson turned the derided pulp genre into literature and art, featuring unreliable narrators, odd structure, and surrealism.
The writer R.V. Cassills has suggested that of all pulp fiction, Thompson's was the rawest and most harrowing; that neither Dashiell Hammett nor Raymond Chandler nor even Horace McCoy, author of the bleak They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, ever "wrote a book within miles of Thompson".  Similarly, in the introduction to Now and on Earth, Stephen King says he most admires Thompson's work because "The guy was over the top. The guy was absolutely over the top. Big Jim didn't know the meaning of the word stop. There are three brave lets inherent in the forgoing: he let himself see everything, he let himself write it down, then he let himself publish it."
Thompson admired Fyodor Dostoevsky and was nicknamed "Dimestore Dostoevsky" by writer Geoffrey O'Brien. Film director Stephen Frears, who directed an adaptation of Thompson's The Grifters as 1990's The Grifters, also identified elements of Greek tragedy in his themes.
