“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. The psychologists would call it folie a deux…

Strangers on a Train was Patricia Highsmith’s first novel, and adapted into a classic film by Alfred Hitchcock.

‘A true original in crime fiction’ The Times

Publisher Review

Her writing is clean, exact, polished to a hard glint; she combines an acute emotional perceptiveness with a disturbing readiness to torture her characters and, by extension, her audience * Stylist * A true original in crime fiction and a superb writer * The Times * A writer who created a world of her own - a world claustrophobic and irrational which we enter each time with a sense of personal danger -- Graham Greene A gem... A magnificent suspense * Daily Mail *
