Kill the Boss Good-bye

(1956)
A novel by

 
 
Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad. Tom Fell has been mad for some time. But who has the nerve to destroy him? While Tom Fell was away, his empire collapsed. The cops started raiding his betting parlors. The lieutenant he left in charge decided he wanted to stay in charge.

Now Fell is back from his enigmatic vacation-tan, rested, and teetering on the edge of psychosis. Can Fell claw his way back to power without ending up in an institution? And can anybody stop him without ending up in the morgue?

Kill the Boss Good-Bye is a post-Freudian thiller that manages to be simultaneously terrifying and tragic. Elegantly modulated and filled with characters who inspire both compassion and revulsion, this novel transports us to the frontier where sickness becomes pure evil.
