A Virago Modern Classic

'If I really don't like somebody, I kill him . . . You remember Malcolm McRae, don't you?'

When one of her lovers is murdered, Vic hints to her latest conquest that he was responsible. As rumours spread about Vic's vicious streak, fiction and reality start to converge.

Portrait
Patricia Highsmith (1921-1995) was born in Fort Worth, Texas. Her first novel,
Strangers on a Train, was made into a classic film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1951.
The Talented Mr Ripley, published in 1955, introduced the fascinating anti-hero Tom Ripley, and was made into an Oscar-winning film in 1999 by Anthony Minghella.

Patricia Highsmith died in Locarno, Switzerland, in February 1995. Her last novel,
