Book Review Editor Stephanie Brown’s Note: James M. Cain was a master of hardboiled noir. Three of his novels are outstanding: Mildred Pierce, Double Indemnity, and The Postman Always Rings Twice. These three were made into iconic American films as well, with Double Indemnity’s script penned by Raymond Chandler.

Tautly narrated and excruciatingly suspenseful, Double Indemnity gives us an X-ray view of guilt, of duplicity, and of the kind of obsessive, loveless love that devastates everything it touches. First published in , this novel reaffirmed James M. Cain as a virtuoso of the roman noir.   The result is a compulsively readable book, which at pages took me only three or four hours to read. Very similar to his "The Postman Always Rings Twice," Cain's "Double Indemnity" is dialogue-driven and a combination of existential dread and noir -- "existential dreadnoir," as I call it/5().
