Fools’ Gold

Fools’ Gold, originally published in 1958, is Hitchens’ dark brooding caper gone wrong story about a trio of youths out to grab a suitcase full of money before the professional hoods move in. Hitchens nails it right in her portrayals of Skip, Eddie, and Karen and the greed that propels them down that fateful path. At first, it seems like nothing more than another juvenile delinquency tale which were popular back in the day, but slowly but surely Hitchens carves this one into something deadlier and gone more wrong than any of the principals could ever imagine. And, in the end, nothing could have been planned less wisely or gone more sideways.
