A brilliantly dark and menacing tale.
You'll be hard pushed to find a better noir thriller.
THE BIG CLOCK has it - the deadpan, make-believe sinister quality, and the terse, preposterous fancy. It is, besides, a thriller with a unique plot
If you enjoy top-drawer detective fiction...we can recommend this one with no reservations whatsoever
So rare a compound of irony, satire, and icy-fingered narrative
[A] brilliant study in noir...deservedly a classic in its depiction of the corporate man at his most basic and disloyal
A master of the tour de force
