The Criminal

The Criminal

Everyone in Kenton Hills knows that short-tempered, tongue-tied Bob Talbert wasn’t the one responsible for the brutal crime that ended Josie Eddleman’s life. Nevermind that he was the last one to see her alive.

But in a town filled with the likes of an amoral tabloid reporter known only as The Captain, a district attorney who’ll do anything for a confession, and Bob’s parents, who care as little for Bob as they do for each other, guilt and innocence are little more than a matter of perspective.

In a masterfully woven tapestry of multiple points of view, THE CRIMINAL explores the nature of guilt and responsibility in a psychological thriller of an entire town under the spell of an act of brutal violence. Jim Thompson unlike you’re ever read him before.
