Publisher's Summary

The great revival of interest in Patricia Highsmith continues with this work that reveals the chilling reality behind the idyllic facade of American suburban life.

In Deep Water, set in the small town of Little Wesley, Vic and Melinda Meller's loveless marriage is held together only by a precarious arrangement whereby in order to avoid the messiness of divorce, Melinda is allowed to take any number of lovers as long as she does not desert her family. Eventually, Vic tries to win her back by asserting himself through a tall tale of murder - one that soon comes true.

    Story
    "One of Her Best"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Deep Water to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print edition. But Patricia Highsmith's books are always good, and this is a fine production of this one.

    "Classic Highsmith: Dark and Deadly"

    Very happy with story and narrator. One never knows how her novel will end. Now on to her next novel.

    Story
    "Another can't miss from Patricia Highsmith"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    while the story is from 1957, it still seems contemporary.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Deep Water?

    The different levels of deceit by the characters was fascinating.
