Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Cain, Marlowe - keepers?

Date: 11 Jul 2006

I read Cain's first four novels back in the late '70s/early '80s, the Vintage reprints with those great sepia-toned pesudo-vintage photo covers -- Postman, Indemity, Serenade and Mildred Pierce. I also picked up Love's Lonely Counterfeit fromthat series, but still haven't read it; they also reprinted Butterfly, but I didn't get it (I know it's not fair to the book, but I couldn't get it out of my head that it was made into a Pia Zadora movie).

Anyway, I saw another Cain book today -- a Brit reprint of The Root of His Evil, copyright early to mid '50s. I've never heard of it; is it any good?
