    1. So just who is our noir protagonist in this tight little gem He is Les Ferron, who describes himself thus And when her father, sprinkling his conversation liberally with thees and thous had asked him what he did for a living, what could he tell the man That he was a part time male model who posed for the lurid pictures in true crime magazines that he was a bit radio actor and small time gigolo that he broke arms and legs, and backs if necessary, to keep a nasty little loan shark s creditors in l [...]

    2. A real find, pure noir gold The story about a Manhattan loan shark bully who doubles as a model for true detective magazines hatches a scheme to woo the upstate country virgin with the big bazooms and an even bigger inheritance waiting for her If that wasn t enough larceny to please you he makes a play for the gorgeous black widow of the cop he accidentally killed Day Keene pulled out all the stops for this one

    3. This is probably the best Day Keene novel I ve read so far We have a protagonist who finds a nice setup in a country virgin and her wealthy pops He builds up a facade within the town, gaining trust and friendship throughout Soon he ll be married to the beautiful girl and life will be a cherry pie But first he has to disentangle himself from his violent past And you know, things never go as planned Excellent

    4. It doesn t get much better than this I ve read a few of Day Keene s books and this one is by far the best Kind of reminds me of some of the better Gil Brewer and Charles Willeford novels Here you have a protagonist almost devoid of conscience It also had some elements of Davis Grub s Night of the Hunter.

    5. This is a dandy, tight little crime novel There s no mystery here, as we follow our protagonist, Les Ferron, and watch him commit his crimes Arguably, there is no real surprise here this is a typical crime book, with the conscienceless well, almost conscienceless, anyway protagonist, the good girl, the bad girl, the escalation of the situation as each time the protagonist thinks he s in the clear something else happens to throw him into peril, and of course the twist at the end, after he thinks [...]

    6. Sleep with the Devil fits in the category of narrator main character that is unreliable, or that is a sociopath criminal, familiar territory of works from noted noir scribes like Thompson, Willeford, and Brewer This novel is as good or better than most of them The fascinating Les Ferron character is cooly intelligent and painstakingly calculating, and very capable of recovering nicely when he does fuck up Nicely plotted with a couple of great twists The novel might deserve five stars, but I feel [...]

    7. Sleep With the Devil is a great example of top notch pulp fiction It is the story of a small time conman and loan shark enforcer who thinks he has the system beat and inexorably feels the walls closing in on him Les Ferron is part Jim Thompson psychopath and part Orrie Hitt sharp talking conman Ferris has two parellel lives, two parallel cons, and a plan to hide out in plain sight as a bible salesman farmer in a Amish like town outside of NYC This book shows his psychopathic act forming and the [...]

    8. i really enjoyed the book the main character was defintely smart and the end was so unexpected for me the book was really enjoyable
