From the Publisher With the acclaim for The Talented Mr. Ripley, more film projects in production, and two biographies forthcoming, expatriate legend Patricia Highsmith would be shocked to see that she has finally arrived in her homeland. Throughout her career, Highsmith brought a keen literary eye and a genius for plumbing the psychopathic mind to more than thirty works of fiction, unparalleled in their placid deviousness and sardonic humor. With deadpan accuracy, she delighted in creating true sociopaths in the guise of the everyday man or woman. Now, two of her finest works are again in print: Strangers on a Train, Highsmith''s first novel and the source for Alfred Hitchcock''s classic 1953 film, and A Suspension of Mercy, a masterpiece of noir fantasy. With both novels, Highsmith revels in eliciting the unsettling psychological forces that lurk beneath the surface of everyday contemporary life.
