That book is DEATH ON THE CHEAP & it is an indispensable addition to anyone's library if they are fan(atics) of film noir - it fills in a gap left by the several other excellent volumes on film noir by covering films that have been almost completely ignored by the other books. It is published by Da Capo, who were also responsible for HARDBOILED AMERICA by Geoffrey O'Brien, IIRC, another indispensable book, IMO.
