White, Lionel: The Killing (Clean Break).v1, 15 Sep 2008
This title was released under a Creative Commons License with a link to the book here. There is additional acknowledgement AND a link again placed at the end of the book. Book was acquired from Munseys, BUT REFORMATED BY ME TO MY SPECIFICATIONS.
This was adapted into an important early film by Stanley Kubrick.
Here's what one reviewer from Amazon wrote:
"....The author, Lionel White, must be credited for originating the non-linear story telling technique he used for the interplay of several disparate characters cooperating succesfully for a two million dollar robbery of a racetrack, during a major sweepstakes race, in broad daylight.
"Surprisingly well written and containing an articulate but streetwise writing-style, THE KILLING is the story of thirty-six year old career criminal Johnny Clay, who conjured-up in his mind a race track robbery during his four year stint in prison for larceny, and while out on parole, placed his theory into practice. Recruiting five key 'inside' figures to pull off his heist, Johnny Clay then sub-contracted three professional hoods, outside of his amateur entourage, to perform necessary and unique diversions."
If you like your mysteries packed with hard-boiled action and suspense, then you should find this great noir mystery to your liking.
I hope you enjoy it.
