8 of 10 people found the following review helpful: Worth reading, June 19, 2001 Reviewer: A reader from Aarau, AG Switzerland This is an quite interesting story about a man's desperate love for a girl that is out of his reach. It also contains some psychological aspects which give an even more thrilling touch to the novel. Patricia Highsmith perfects the art of transporting the reader into a dangerous, double-edged world of crime and lies. It's absolutely worth reading. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
