Killer Inside, Grifters, and Hell of a Woman all are really good Thompson in my book. Sleepers might be The Criminal, The Killoff, and I enjoyed the hell out of The Golden Gizmo which is funny and highly enertaining. It's Thompson's version of the Tall Tale meets Noir. The Golden Gizmo is my favorite Thompson yet it is not even in the running in the best written category.
