When Ralph Linderman returns a stranger''s wallet he found during a morning stroll through Greenwich Village, he is entirely unprepared for the complex maze of sexual obsession and disturbing psychological intrigue he is about to be drawn into. Patricia Highsmith, author of The Tremor of Forgery, Strangers on a Train, and The Cry of the Owl has once again created an unsettling thriller that explores the bleakest alleyways of human desire. Highsmith has been called ?one of the finest crime novelists" by the New York Times and is now considered one of the most original voices in twentieth-century American fiction.

From the Publisher

When Ralph Linderman returns a stranger''s wallet he found during a morning stroll through Greenwich Village, he is entirely unprepared for the complex maze of sexual obsession and disturbing psychological intrigue he is about to be drawn into. Patricia Highsmith, author of The Tremor of Forgery, Strangers on a Train, and The Cry of the Owl has once again created an unsettling thriller that explores the bleakest alleyways of human desire. Highsmith has been called ?one of the finest crime novelists" by the New York Times and is now considered one of the most original voices in twentieth-century American fiction.

About the Author

As a writer of novels, short stories, and teleplays, Highsmith is known for her character studies exploring people's darker side---the side of an apparently moral person who is capable of murder. Highsmith likes to examine the ways in which people can get to the point at which they are capable of murder, as well as who they become after they have committed a crime. In carefully constructed stories and novels, she integrates this scrutiny of the human psyche into complex plots that often take unexpected twists. An example is her first novel, Strangers on a Train (1950), in which architect Guy Haines meets Charles Bruno on a train. Bruno conceives a plan to have Haines kill Bruno's father, while Bruno will kill Haines's wife. The effect that this plan has on Haines is the focus of the story. Highsmith does not publish a great amount of fiction, but when she does, her work is always among the best in the genre.
