Steamy thriller, set in the Depression era, about a drifter who begins an affair with a married woman and plots with her to kill her husband. A remake of the classic 1946 film starring John Garfield and Lana Turner. The novel was successful and notorious upon publication. It is regarded as one of the more important crime novels of the 20th century. Fast-moving and brief (only about 100 pages long, depending on the edition), the novel's mix of sexuality and violence was startling in its time and caused it to be banned in Boston.[1] It is included in Modern Library's list of 100 best novels.[2] The novel has been adapted as a motion picture seven times (see Adaptations). The 1946 version is probably the best known and is regarded as an important film noir
