Cry of the Owl by Patricia Highsmith
Book DescriptionRobert Forester didn't look like the kind of man to be a prowler. His ex-wife had told the police he was erratic, liable to violence, had evenfired a gun at her. Maybe he was psychopathic murderer...

Strangers on a Train, Hardback (September 2016)
The classic thriller behind the Hitchcock film, and Highsmith's first novel - soon to be remade by David Fincher, director of Gone Girl, with a screenplay by Gillian Flynn.
Celda de Cristal, Paperback / softback (August 2016)
Falsely convicted, the easygoing Philip Carter is sentenced to six lonely, drug-ravaged years in prison. Upon his release, Carter is a more suspicious and violent man. The Glass Cell's bleak and compelling portrait of prison life is as relevant today as it was when the book was first published in 1964.

Patricia Highsmith draws us deep into a cross-European game of cat and mouse in this masterpiece of suspense from the author of The Talented Mr Ripley.
US Kirkus Review » Robert, a prowler-peeper with a record of instability, is perhaps more harmless than he seems, certainly to Jenny, the object of his observation, who gets rid of her fiance- Greg- and falls in love with him. With Greg's disappearance he is suspect; his ex-wife's scurrulous remarks and Jenny's suicide contribute; and he is still more alone when his recurrent dream of death is fulfilled...Again a distinct originality and intentional obscurity- to tantalize and terrify (although the negligent police action is harder to reconcile.)
