The Night Always Comes

Willy Vlautin

£8.99 £8.54

The Postman Always Rings Twice

James M. Cain

£8.99 £8.54

A classic noir that’s fast and ugly, romantic and sociopathic. Cain’s greatest work and a novel that holds up ninety years later.

A Manual for Cleaning Women: Selected Stories

Lucia Berlin

£9.99 £9.49

This collection is one of my all-time favorites. It’s a crime that Berlin never received the recognition she deserved in her lifetime. These stories are bruised and beat up but never bitter and never hopeless.

Winter's Bone

Daniel Woodrell

£9.99 £9.49

WINTER’S BONE is a masterpiece. Woodrell is a genius with noir and a genius with language and it’s breathtaking here.

They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

Horace McCoy

£8.99 £8.54

A couple meet at a 1930s dance contest. It’s a novel steeped in the desperation of the depression and the panic of fading youth. Another noir classic.

True Grit: The New York Times bestselling that inspired two award-winning films

Charles Portis

£9.99 £9.49

Mattie Ross is only a kid, but she wants justice for her family. In a world run by men, and often very bad men, she’s the toughest, the smartest, and the only one with true grit.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

B Traven and Sam Sloan


This action/adventure novel is a brilliant study of greed. Three men go in search of the treasure of the Sierra Madre and madness ensues.
