THE KILLER INSIDE ME has been a cult classic since its first publication in 1952. Also a major motion picture starring Casey Affleck, directed by Michael Winterbottom.

Deputy Sheriff Lou Ford is a pillar of the community in his small Texas town, patient and thoughtful. Some people think he’s a little slow and boring but that’s the worst they say about him. But then nobody knows about what Lou calls his ‘sickness’. It nearly got him put away when he was younger, but his adopted brother took the rap for that.

Now the sickness that has been lying dormant for a while is about to surface again – and the consequences are brutal and devastating. Tense and suspenseful, THE KILLER INSIDE ME is a brilliantly sustained noir crime masterpiece.

Reviews

I don't read many books twice but Jim Thompson novels - due to their concise, dirty power, their relentless violence and purity - can always draw me in for a second time. Some of the most psychological crime writing ever done. I love James M Cain and Elmore Leonard but Jim Thompson holds a special place in my heart.
Bruce Springsteen
Probably the most chilling and believable first-person story of a criminally warped mind I have ever encountered
Stanley Kubrick
I'd never read anything like the books he turned out in the '50s and '60s. His ability to get inside twisted minds was uncanny...extraordinary
INDEPENDENT
The best suspense writer going, bar none
NEW YORK TIMES
Thompson captured the spirit of his Age, and the spirit of the 20th Century's latter half: emptiness, a feeling of loss in a land of plenty, of unease amid conformity, of alienation
