Two years after Caldo Largo was published, Thompson died of a heart-attack in Sausalito, California. His fourth and last book, The Devil to Pay, returns to his autobiographical narrativethis time with a nearly identical protagonist called Jarl Carlson ("Jarl" is the Scandinavian form of Earl) and was published after his death by Thompson's friend and estate executor Gilmer Y.
