About the author (1961)

On the day he accidentally killed Aaron McBride, Tom Lord went from being a sheriff's deputy to a man awaiting execution. Because if the law didn't punish him, his victim's widow--or his shadowy business associates--surely would.

The Transgressors is a novel of hair-trigger tension and mind-boggling reversals, a one-way trip into the desolate territory that Jim Thompson mapped and staked out as his own and populated with tarnished cops, conniving hustlers, and ingeniously sadistic thugs.
