I'm reading Domenic's MANIFESTO FOR THE DEAD (I have a couple of questions about it I'll save until I'm done) which features Jim Thompson as the main character. It reminded me of Joe Gores' HAMMETT, which is about Dashiell Hammett. And coincidentally, the 1982 movie version (which Ross Thomas helped write) is now out on DVD for Region 1. When I first saw it in 1984, I was enthralled. I saw it later, and didn't like it so much. I'll watch it again and see what I think now.
