CRIME DOESN'T PAY IN THIS GETAWAY M. Grant If you have ever considered robbing a bank, then I suggest you start by reading this book. After 184 pages you'll quickly decide that all you're in for is a life of worryand a quickly diminishing bank account.The Getaway tells the story of Doc and Carol McCoy and how they have robbed a bank with just over $200,000 and are attempting to flee the country. Of course along the way they have to escape the police, fellow henchman out to kill them, petty thieves, and numerous problems that they could never have predicted. The two work together because t. Untouchable said Trust Nobody. There are no heroes in The Getaway. As a matter of fact there is no-one who is remotely likable, trustworthy or who contains a shred of decency. It's about a group of criminals who are just as dangerous to their colleagues as they are to the innocent victims who cross their paths.The story starts off with the well-planned and executed robbery of a bank. During and immediately after the heist the criminals' callous disregard for human life is displayed. These are ruthless, desperate and even deranged people. We then follow their getaway as they do. "on the road to nowhere" according to lazza. The Getaway is vintage Jim Thompson: a short, bleak story of 1950s down-and-outs, deadbeats and criminals.

Neither person is pretty or especially likeable. Yet their desperate plight to make a getaway is fascinating and they go about m

. In examining the underbelly of human experience and American society in particular, Thompson’s work at its best is both philosophical and experimental. Several of his novels have been filmed by American and French directors, resulting in classic noir including The Killer Inside Me (1952), After Dark My Sweet (1955), and The Grifters (1963). Thom
