The inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1951 film, the novel that established Patricia Highsmith as a master of noir fiction.

“In this mesmerizing [novel] . . . not to be recommended for the weak-minded and impressionable” (Washington Post), we encounter Guy Haines, a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, and Charles Anthony Bruno, a conniving psychopath who manipulates a chance encounter with Guy into a sadistic plot to swap murders. “Some people are better off dead,” says Bruno, “like your wife and my father, for instance.” As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy becomes trapped in Patricia Highsmith’s perilous world, where under the right circumstances anyone is capable of murder. Still her most iconic novel, Strangers on a Train elicits “the menace that lurks in familiar surroundings” (Time) and the unsettling forces that tremble beneath the surface of everyday life.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Just in time for the centennial celebration of groundbreaking noir fiction writer Patricia Highsmith comes a reissue of her propulsive, engrossing debut, Strangers on a Train, with a new introduction by best-selling author Paula Hawkins. Guy Haines and Charles Anthony Bruno are passengers on the same train. Haines is a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, Bruno a mysterious smooth-talker with a sadistic proposal: hell murder Hainess wife if Haines will murder Brunos father. As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy finds himself trapped in Highsmiths perilous world, where, under the right circumstances, ordinary people are capable of extraordinary crimes. The inspiration for Alfred Hitchcocks classic 1951 film, Strangers on a Train launched Highsmiths prolific career, proving her a master at depicting the unsettling forces that tremble beneath the surface of everyday life. "Strangers on a Train has lost none of its power to disturbWe will likely be reading Patricia Highsmith for the next one hundred years." Paula Hawkins Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780393351934
