The Wicked Go To Hell
by Frédéric Dard
Pub Date 20 Sep 2016
A cop receives a mission - to win the confidence of an enemy spy, currently in prison, and so to expose destroy his spy ring. What better way to allay his suspicions than for the policeman to enter the prison himself, posing as a criminal? So, Frank and Hal end up sharing a cell, but who is the spy and who is the cop? And who will win their claustrophobic game of cat and mouse? Memorably filmed by Robert Hossein in 1955, this tense and brilliantly original thriller is one of Dard's most powerful.
"With their tight plots, the stories are particularly cinematic, and fi lm-makers are already showing interest. Dard also wrote screenplays and plays. Their revival could be just around the corner." — The Observer
