A Swell-Looking Babe

Jim Thompson

synopsis

Now available for the first time in an illustrated hardcover edition with a new introduction by Duane Swierczynski. The Manton looks like a respectable hotel. Dusty Rhodes looks like a selfless young man working as a bellhop. And the woman in 1004 looks like an angel. But sometimes looks can kill, as Jim Thompson demonstrates in this vision of the crime novel as gothic. This edition features color and black & white artwork, reproductions of old paperback covers and film posters, and is signed by Duane Swierczynski, Patrick Loehr, and Paul Wedlake. Bound in full black cloth and a gorgeous dustjacket.
