The hard-bitten PI with a bottle of bourbon in his desk drawer—it’s an image as old as the genre of hard-boiled detective fiction itself. Alcohol has long been an important element of detective fiction, but it is no mere prop. Rather, the treatment of alcohol within the works informs and illustrates the detective’s moral code, and casts light upon the society’s attitudes towards drink. This examination of the role of alcohol in hard-boiled detective fiction begins with the genre’s birth, in an era strongly influenced and affected by prohibition, and follows both the genre’s development and its relation to our changing understanding of and attitudes towards alcohol and alcoholism. It discusses the works of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, Mickey Spillane, Robert B. Parker, Lawrence Block, Marcia Muller, Karen Kijewski and Sue Grafton. There are bibliographies of both the primary and critical texts, and an index of authors and works.

“If you’re not part of the solution, you must be part of the problem.” You heard that a lot in the early 1970s, when the country seemed to be teetering on the brink of revolutionary upheaval. Miles Dorn, living quietly in retirement in the U.S., had come a long way from his roots in Central Europe, leaving his past as an assassin and agent provocateur behind him. But as soon as he walks into his house and smells the smoke from a Turkish cigarette, he knows nobody can walk away from the past. It’s always there, and it can reach out at any moment and get hold of you. He’s recruited for a series of assassinations designed to render his adopted country vulnerable to a political coup. Instead of the elaborate web that’s the staple of conspiracy theorists, he’s one man, working alone. He’s also a man falling in love, and with a woman a generation too young for him. “We’re the same age, Miles,” she insists. “I’ve known you for exactly as long as you’ve known me.” Of course he likes the sound of that, but he knows better than to believe it. Just as he knows better than to believe that their love affair—or anything else in his life—has a real chance of working out. But what can he do? Is Dorn part of the solution—or a principal part of the problem? The Triumph of Evil is a powerful evocation of perilous time in America’s recent past. It’s a thriller on a human scale, and you’ll be stunned by its plausibility and gripped by its suspense. This Classic Crime Library ebook edition of The Triumph of Evil includes as a bonus the first chapter of the next book in the series, Such Men Are Dangerous.
