Hechizo de Elsie by Patricia Highsmith Hechizo de Elsie, Paperback / softback (September 2016)

Ralph returns a strangers wallet that he found during a morning stroll through Greenwich Village, entirely unprepared for the complex maze of disturbing psychological intrigue he is about to be drawn into. Patricia Highsmith has once again created a most unsettling thriller.

Celda de Cristal by Patricia Highsmith 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.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » When first and last met Ripley Underground (1970) could not be left there - with his French wife Heloise and all their gracious living (bettered by the man he last killed) and his truly inventive and agile mind without a scruple in it, Tom Ripley had to survive. This time he helps out an old fence and gambler who wants a couple of "simple murders" done; what could be simpler than finding the perfect murderer - a man who is already doomed (leukemia) and giving him an assist with the twist of a garrote on a train? Not quite as outrageously complicated as the first but still the ultimate in elegant, amused, sophisticated sangfroid. (Kirkus Reviews)
