One Way Out (vastly inferiror to the original film, The Big Clock, which was more noir in mise en scene than in script; haven't read teh book, so I can't tell you how faithfull it was). Don't worry, most books are now retitled to go along with the movie title, a practice that has always annoyed me. For instance, Richard Stark's The Hunter has now been released under three different titles, so far.
