By the bestselling author of The Talented Mr Ripley, Carol and Strangers on a Train

‘Highsmith’s novels are peerlessly disturbing . . . bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night’ New Yorker

Sydney Bartleby has killed his wife. At least, he has thought about it, compulsively, repeatedly, plotting schemes, designing escapes, forging alibis. Of course he has; he’s a thriller writer. He even knows how to dispose of her body. But when Alicia takes a long, unannounced holiday, Sydney descends into the treacherous world of his own fantasy.

A masterpiece of noir fantasy in which Highsmith revels in eliciting the unsettling psychological forces that lurk beneath the surface of everyday life.
