The great revival of interest in Patricia Highsmith continues with the publication of a novel that will give dog owners nightmares for years to come.With an eerie simplicity of style, Highsmith turns our next-door neighbors into sadistic psychopaths, lying in wait among white picket fences and manicured lawns. In A Dog's Ransom, Highsmith blends savage humor with brilliant social satire in this dark tale of a high-minded criminal who hits a wealthy Manhattan couple where it hurts the most-by kidnapping their beloved poodle.
