Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith

Book Description

The psychologists would call it folie a deux...'Bruno slammed his palms together.' "Hey! Cheeses, what an idea! I kill your wife and you kill my father! We meet on a train, see, and nobody knows we know each other! Perfect alibis! Catch?" From this moment, almost against his conscious will, Guy Haines is trapped in a nightmare of shared guilt and an insidious merging of personalities.

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.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » The sphere of suspense for the story of a strange, parasitic attachment and the unbelievable events which follow. Guy Haines, on the way to Texas to divorce his wife Miriam so that he can marry Anne, is picked up by Charles Bruno, an alcoholic and a maniac, who suggests to him that he murder Miriam- in exchange for Guy's murder of the father he hates. Dismissing this at the time, Guy later finds that Miriam has been murdered, and he is haunted by the reappearance of Bruno, threats, letters. Guy, composed and reputable at the time, is finally worn down by guilt, fear, sleeplessness, and he commits the murder that Bruno lays out for him. Never free of his conscience- or of Bruno-Bruno's accidental death is the impetus for Guy's eventual confession.... All of this seems quite unreasonable. (Kirkus Reviews)
