Summary
  • A fast-paced proletarian novel originally published in 1949, Thieves' Market was inspired by the author's youthful experiences as a trucker hauling produce to the packing houses of California's Central Valley. Immigrant Nick Garcos becomes an independent trucker, soon landing in the brutal and crooked underworld of the produce markets of San Francisco, Oakland, Stockton, and Los Angeles
  • Vividly set in the sundrenched landscapes and urban squalor of California in the 1940s, Thieves' Market is a major example of the genre of noir fiction that continues to fascinate the Hollywood cinema and general readers alike. For this edition, Garrett White has provided a new foreword and the author a new afterword
