7)Sinful Woman (NY: Avon, October 1947, book in digest size)
[working titles: "At the Galloping Domino" and "Sierra Moon"]
(revision of the play "7-11", written in 1938)

[--"Set to the furious tempo of the clicking dice and whirling roulette wheels of Reno, this is the story of a beautiful actress' willful younger sister--and James M. Cain uses this explosive triangle to create realism at its finest! "]
[--New York: [1947]. First edition, Avon Monthly Novels.
Avon Books. Digest Size. 1947 ed.
Book Description: New York: Avon Publications, Inc., [1957]., 1957. Fourth edition of the paperback original, as rack-size Avon 768. The printing history on the copyright page of this edition treats all four Avon editions, and the second printing of the second edition, as successive printings of the same edition, though each of the editions has a different publisher's number and different cover art. As a result, this fourth edition copy is identified as the "Fifth Printing. March, 1957." Using the printing dates in this copy, it is possible to reconstruct the correct early publishing history of SINFUL WOMAN, as follows: Avon Monthly Novel #1. First edition, in digest-size wraps...Oct 1947 Avon 174. Second edition (first rack-size), with new cover art...Sep 1948 Avon 174. Second printing, same cover.Mar 1949 Avon 599. Third edition (rack-size), with new cover art...July 1954 Avon 768. Fourth edition (rack-size), with new cover art...March 1957 In anticipation of this fourth edition, Cain signed a new contract with Avon on 29 June 1956, giving Avon exclusive rights for three more years to publish and sell paperbound editions of Sinful Woman for no more than 25 cents a copy. The next such edition had to be published within one year of the new agreement, which provided for Cain to receive a $500 advance on signing and another $500 on publication of the next edition. As Cain's biographer Roy Hoopes tells it, Cain was desperate for money at this point in his career, and the $1000 advance from Avon (on a title that they had already been selling for almost ten years) must have seemed a great windfall. One of the two (or perhaps three?) master copies of this contract, signed in ink by Cain, by Avon's executive v.p. Joseph Mann, and by someone from Cain's literary agents, Harold Ober Associates, is included with our VG+ copy of Avon 768, whose publication in March of '57 met the contract's one-year deadline with a couple of months to spare.

8)The Moth (Knopf, 1948)  (Мотылек).
9)Jealous Woman (Avon, 1950)
[working titles: "The Lady Waiting Upstairs", "Nevada Moon"]
and  + working title: "The Modern Cinderella"-???*]

[--In 1946 Cain wrote "Nevada Moon", which he intended to sell for serial publication and to the movies. The story originally featured the character Keyes, Edward G. Robinson's character in "Double Indemnity"; Robinson was reportedly interested in pursuing Keyes as a continuing character. "Nevada Moon" failed to impress its intended audience, and so it was put away until Cain dusted it off, rewrote it (eliminating all references to Keyes and "Double Indemnity"), and allowed Avon to publish it as a paperback original. Again Avon changed the title, the published work emerging with the more exploitive "Jealous Woman".
--Cain's only detective narrators are the sheriff in "Sinful Woman" (1948) and the insurance investigator, modeled after Keyes in "Double Indemnity", in "Jealous Woman" (1950); these were published together in a single volume ("Jealous Woman") in Britain in 1955.]

(Ревнивая женщина).

(в первом варианте 1946 г. действовал Keyes, персонаж из "Double Indemnity", позднее автор его исключил).

10)The Root of His Evil (Avon, 1951);
aka: Shameless (Avon, 1958)
[working titles:"The Modern Cinderella"] (written in 1937)

[--Cain's 1937 serial "The Modern Cinderella" was made into the 1939 movie When Tomorrow Comes, starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer. Once again Avon agreed to publish the novel as a paperback original, and once again they did not like Cain's title. This time Cain assisted in the renaming process, and "The Root of his Evil" was the result.]
