<<I just read an interesting article by David Thomson in Sight & Sound
on The Night of the Hunter, where he makes comparisons between the film
and the novel by Davis Grubb. It also mentions that the book has been
republished recently. Judging from the few quotes and from Thomson's
comments, it sounds as if it could be hard-boiled. Has anyone read it?
Is it worth reading? Any comments? Thanks!>>

The book is a blood-chilling thriller. Extremely well written. I have
the Blue Murder reprint from the late eighties.
