I wouldn't doubt it. At the time, I was a pretty strict hardboiled PI guy and had not yet expanded my taste to non-PI noir (for instance, I was unimpressed by, close to disliking Killer Inside Me the first time I read it). That would come just a couple years later when I read Cain's first four novels.

Maybe I should add Sanctuary to my reread list. The recent talk led me picked up Gatsby last night.

Speaking of revivals, I just watched Murder My Sweet, from the new Film Noir box I got for Christmas. What a great, great movie.
