FROM THE PUBLISHER - Charlotte Armstrong says: ‘This book is an experience, and a nightmare.’ Robert Forester worked for Langley Aeronautics in Pennsylvania. The job suited him, and he was glad to get away from New York and its unpleasant memories, hangovers from his fights with Nickie, who was in the process of becoming his ex-wife. Only one thing seemed to cheer him at all these days - he house at Humbert Corners, which was turning him into a Peeping Tom, though a very innocent one. He liked to watch the girl who lived there through her kitchen window, washing dishes, watering her plants, preparing dinner for her fiancé. She looked so happy, she seemed so fond of her house, so pleased to see her young man when he came to call. But even being an innocent Peeping Tom can be embarrassing – and Robert was a clumsy one, too. Lately the girl and her fiancé had apparently realized someone was watching the house. That began the trouble, and Robert’s ex-wife (though she herself had remarried) fanned the flames of trouble maliciously. The flames leaped around Robert. They singed - and even destroyed - the people with whom he came in contact. Patricia Highsmith has written a grim, chilling, deadly suspense novel, that creeps up on the reader slowly and then whams him across the back of the head. It is not a book for those who are easily shaken. Bookstore Stamp In Front, Otherwise Very Good. No Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 4547
