Adorable Jim Thompson-esque gangster film features excellent characters actors and fun twisted plot.  and  take a prominent political figure’s lover () for ransom, but when a shooting occurs during the kidnapping it makes the whole deal a little hairier than expected. Now the players in this game have to figure out who they trust and who is to be left out of the bargain. Enter wisecracking gumshoes  and who follow the case to its messy (especially for them) end.  Thompson’s fans will especially not want to miss this.
