Riassunto: The wheels were beginning to turn. From all parts of the country quiet, tough men slipped into the small southern coastal town and took up the final vigil. There was the arsonist, the safe blower, the boy-faced killer--there was a regiment of crack, lawless men waiting out the minutes until Saturday night--the night the town would explode into violence. For in the center of town sat the bank--a citadel of twelve million dollars, impregnable as Gibraltar, safe as a church. Safe--until precisely ten-fifteen on Saturday night. Until the wheels began to pick up momentum, and suddenly a fire lit the sky, and the power went off all over town and under way went the king-sized knockover. The grand slam. The Big Caper.
About the Author: Lionel White (9 July 1905 – 26 December 1985) was an American journalist and crime novelist, several of whose dark, noirish stories were made into films. His books include The Snatchers (made into a film as The Night of the Following Day by Hubert Cornfield starring Marlon Brando), The Money Trap (made into a movie by Burt Kennedy starring Glenn Ford and Elke Sommer), The Big Caper (made into a film by Robert Stevens starring Rory Calhoun), Death takes the bus, Clean Break (adapted by Stanley Kubrick as the basis for his 1956 film, The Killing), and Obsession (adapted by Jean-Luc Godard as the basis for his 1965 film, Pierrot le fou) and by the Finnish director Seppo Huunonen for the 1974 film The Hair (Karvat) and Rafferty, adapted by 1980 Soviet Lenfilm production of the same title. In 1992, seven years after his death, Quentin Tarantino, in his film Reservoir Dogs, credited White, among others, as an inspiration. White (also known as L.W. Blanco) had been a crime reporter and began writing suspense novels in the 1950s. He wrote more than 35 books, all translated into a number of different languages. His earlier novels were published as Gold Medal pulp hard-boiled crime fiction, but when Duttons began a line of mystery and suspense books, he also wrote for them. He was most well known as what a New York Times review described as "the master of the big caper.” ( Wikipedia)
