Because I Needed a Thorp Fix …

Into the Forest, by Roderick Thorp (MacFadden, 1962). Originally released in hardcover in 1961, this was the first novel by Bronx native Thorp, who would go on to compose The Detective (1966), which provided the plot for a 1968 Frank Sinatra movie of that same name, and its 1979 sequel, Nothing Lasts Forever, adapted very loosely into the Bruce Willis action film Die Hard (1988).
