Jim Thompsons' 'The Killer Inside Me' was published in the 1950's. A pulp novel about a small town sheriff who commits two pointless murders is a disturbingly accurate portrait of the mind of serial murderer. A person devoid of empathy. Thompson was an underappreciated writer of his time who worked with Stanley Kubrick as a screen writer on some of his earliest films but was denied the credit he really deserved.
