This highly-charged and thrilling BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of a Patricia Highsmith novel twists an ordinary encounter between two strangers into an disquieting tale of obsession and peril. When two men meet on a train, there's nothing they fear to say. They'll never see each other again. But a misunderstanding binds them together, in word, deed and blood. The starry cast includes Anton Lesser, Michael Sheen, Saskia Reeves and Bill Nighy.

“An incredible study of psychological torture and how fine the membrane is between normality and the underlying darkness.”
- Tana French
“Strangers on a Train is a moral-vertigo thriller: Crime and Punishment for a post-atomic age.”
- Tom Nolan, The Los Angeles Times
“Strangers on a Train is filled with paranoia and anxiety, and through its twists and turns, we, like poor Guy Haines, are also drawn into psychopath Bruno's web.”
- Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes
