Desperate measures don't begin to solve the problems of the student who kills a pregnant girl in this classic suspense novel. They lead instead to a multiple murder plot as compelling -- and chilling -- as it is unpredictable.

Ira Levin is the New York Times bestselling author of Rosemary?s Baby, The Stepford Wives, The Boys from Brazil, A Kiss Before Dying, and Sliver, each of which was made into a major motion picture. He also wrote ?Deathtrap,? the longest running thriller in Broadway history, and has won two Edgar Allan Poe awards. He lives in New York City.Review:
“The book is a succession of quite legitimate surprises, the suspense is admirably sustained, the detail is thorough and convincing, and the writing is considerably above the level usually associated with fictional crime and passion. A pleasure to recommend.” (The New Yorker )
“Here is not merely an extraordinary first but an extraordinary suspense novel by the highest professional standards; and you have an evening of incomparable excitement ahead of you. Levin combines great talent for pure novel writing with strict whodunit tricks as dazzling as anything ever brought off by Ellery Queen or Agatha Christie.” (Anthony Boucher - The New York Times )
