Read full description of the books:

Doc McCoy es un encantador, amoral y calculador criminal que, tras salir de la cárcel, planifica el atraco a un banco de una pequeña ciudad de Texas junto con su esposa Carol y un peligroso psicópata, Rudy Torrento. Aunque el robo sale tal como lo habían planeado, la fuga hacia California para cruzar después la frontera mexicana se complica, ya que el matrimonio McCoy no sólo tiene a la policía pisándole los talones, sino también a un furioso y vengativo Torrento, a quien Doc cree haber asesinado inmediatamente después del atraco. Durante su odisea en busca de la libertad, Doc y Carol McCoy se encontrarán con numerosas dificultades, pero también con inestimables ayudas.
La huida fue una novela que en un principio pasó totalmente desapercibida, hasta que en 1972 Sam Peckinpah la adaptó al cine una áspera road movie protagonizada por Steve McQueen y la que fuera su esposa en la vida real, Ali MacGraw y contribuyó con ello a conferirle el estatus de clásico que se merecía desde su publicación.

James Myers Thompson was a United States writer of novels, short stories and screenplays, largely in the hardboiled style of crime fiction.

Thompson wrote more than thirty novels, the majority of which were original paperback publications by pulp fiction houses, from the late-1940s through mid-1950s. Despite some positive critical notice, notably by Anthony Boucher in the New York Times, he was little-recognized in his lifetime. Only after death did Thompson's literary stature grow, when in the late 1980s, several novels were re-published in the Black Lizard series of re-discovered crime fiction.

Thompson's writing culminated in a few of his best-regarded works: The Killer Inside Me, Savage Night, A Hell of a Woman and Pop. 1280. In these works, Thompson turned the derided pulp genre into literature and art, featuring unreliable narrators, odd structure, and surrealism.

The writer R.V. Cassills has suggested that of all pulp fiction, Thompson's was the rawest and most harrowing; that neither Dashiell Hammett nor Raymond Chandler nor even Horace McCoy, author of the bleak They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, ever "wrote a book within miles of Thompson". [1] Similarly, in the introduction to Now and on Earth, Stephen King says he most admires Thompson's work because "The guy was over the top. The guy was absolutely over the top. Big Jim didn't know the meaning of the word stop. There are three brave lets inherent in the forgoing: he let himself see everything, he let himself write it down, then he let himself publish it."

Thompson admired Fyodor Dostoevsky and was nicknamed "Dimestore Dostoevsky" by writer Geoffrey O'Brien. Film director Stephen Frears, who directed an adaptation of Thompson's The Grifters as 1990's The Grifters, also identified elements of Greek tragedy in his themes.
