Al Guthrie answered succinctly in a response to your question. And if you check the Rara-Avis archives, you'll find some past discussions about Bardin that have occurred on this list.

My brief discription of Bardin's work would be "part Cornell Woolrich, part James M. Cain." His characters are plagued by their own psychology and by the way some villain manipulates that psychology.
