Heartbreak and Vine I decided to try and track down novels by some of the writers. Many of the books are out of print, but I've managed to get hold of the following:
Horace McCoy - Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye
WR Burnett - Little Caeser
Paul Cain - Fast One
Jonathan Lattime - Headed for a Hearse
Edward Bunker - No Beast So Fierce
Gerald Petievich - To Die in Beverly Hills
I'm looking forward to tucking into these in the coming weeks. In the meantime I'll try and track down some of the others.
