Description
William Kid Collins was once a respected boxer. Now he s a drifter, on the run after escaping from a mental institution. One afternoon he meets Fay, a beautiful young widow. She is smart and decent at least when she s sober. Soon Collins finds himself involved in a kidnapping scheme that goes drastically wrong almost before it even begins. Because the kid they ve picked up isn t like other kids: he s diabetic and without insulin, he ll die. Not the safest situation for Collins, a man for whom stress and violence have long gone hand-in-hand. "After Dark, My Swee"t once again displays Jim Thompson as the undisputed master of American noir. The basis of James Foley s critically acclaimed film of the same name, with the sweep of an epic tragedy, Thompson s classic limns the dangerous territory of honest people all-too-easily sucked into wickedness, with no way out but down."
