I found this softcover on the ongoing charity-sale shelves at a local Hannaford's. I've enjoyed Cain's better-known books, and was curious about this one. While I didn't love it as much as Double Indemnity, it does feature many similar motifs. Here, a man who's gradually become an enforcer for a mob - trying to avoid having to actually harm anyone but being dragged into worse and worse things - falls for one woman and has another fall for him, with increasingly messy complications. The next-to-last chapter has a marvelous transition from Things Are Going Really Well to Oh Crap, in a couple of paragraphs...
