The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M Cain (Vintage V-545 – 1981)

Vintage V-545, later printing

A young vagrant and the sexy, bored wife of a restaurant owner plan to murder her husband, with unexpected results. This, Cain’s first novel, was published when he was forty-two and became an instant sensation. It was banned in Boston, and Albert Camus later acknowledged that it was both the inspiration and the model for his novel The Stranger.

Movie tie-in with the Jack Nicholson/Jessica Lange film.
