Tom Nolan - The Los Angeles Times“Strangers on a Train is a moral-vertigo thriller: Crime and Punishment for a post-atomic age.”
Tana French“An incredible study of psychological torture and how fine the membrane is between normality and the underlying darkness.”
TimeFor eliciting the menace that lurks in familiar surroundings, there's no one like Patricia Highsmith.
New YorkerHighsmith's novels are peerlessly disturbing ....bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night.
Library JournalFrom the I can't believe this is out of print department comes Highsmith's white-knuckler and the basis of the Hitchcock film of the same name. With this, her first novel, Highsmith set the pattern she would follow in later books, introducing sociopaths who are so subtle they can pass unnoticed in the world around them.
