First published in 1934, The Postman Always Rings Twice caused a scandal with its explosive mix of violence and sex, and immediately became a bestseller. The torrid story of Frank Chambers, the amoral drifter, Cora, the sullen and brooding wife, and Nick Papadakis, the amiable but inconvenient husband, has become a classic of its kind, and established Cain as a major novelist with a spare and vital prose style and a bleak vision of America.

5.0 The Postman Always Rings Twice
“The devil got his money’s worth that night.” Unemployed drifter washes up at a service station and makes the telegraph post in his pants all too obvious to the wife of his host. Result? Murder.
