When I was buying a copy of Mildred Pierce, the clerk in the bookstore proffered the unsolicited opinion that the the only books of Cain's wrote worth were Postman, Double Indemnity and MP, but I pushed on to read the black lizard three in volume that includes Butterfly and thought they weren't bad. There are a few others I intend to read, such as the paperback originals he wrote in the 50s.
