CP website synopsis

Nightfall is a tour de force of paranoia and criminal greed, by the writer who turned the crime novel into bitter poetry.
       Jim Vanning has an identity problem. Is he an innocent artist who just happens to have some very dangerous people interested in him? Or is he a killer on the lam from his last murder — with a satchel worth over $300,000 in tow?
       Relentlessly focused and as fast-moving as a getaway car, Nightfall may be David Goodis’s most accomplished novel. It is a fiendishly constructed maze, filled with unpredictable pitfalls and human predators whose authenticity only makes them more terrifying.
       With a new introduction by Bill Pronzini and a long bonus short story, The Blue Sweetheart. Bound in cloth and limited to 300 numbered copies, each one is signed by Bill Pronzini.
