This one is a peculiar piece of backwoods incest and hillbilly soap opera written by the godfather of noir James M Cain It's been a long time since Jess Tyler's two timing wife left him taking their two young daughters with her Since then he's been spending most of his time alone on his farm All that changes when 19 year old Kady shows up on his doorstep; he realizes she's his daughter and takes her in to live with him And against all of Jess's Christian upbringing not only do they start making moonshine up in the dark caves behind his house but they also start making illicit love back there too eeek which sends him into a tizzy and leads to destruction Although I kept reading because it was Cain and I wanted to see how crazy it would get the writing in this one felt awkward and dated and everything about the book seemed a bit rushed as if Cain wrote it as an assignment and was in a hurry to finish it It was released shortly after the three hugely successful movie adaptations of his novels so I'd like to think that maybe he was pressured to churn out a new novel and wanted to make some dough It also came out right around his dark divorce from his wife so maybe it was written during rocky domestic times or maybe he was just drunk or maybe he just plain fucked up Either way the book was pretty weirdIt had a cool ending though And I am happy I read it just to say I did For fans and completists of Cain only There's even a really fascinating and lengthy preface by him in this edition
