Publisher's Summary

A major new reissue of the work of a classic noir novelist. Throughout her career, Patricia Highsmith brought a keen literary eye and a genius for plumbing the psychopathic mind to more than 30 works of fiction, unparalleled in their placid deviousness and sardonic humor. With deadpan accuracy, she delighted in creating true sociopaths in the guise of the everyday man or woman. In A Suspension of Mercy, a masterpiece of noir fantasy, Highsmith revels in eliciting the unsettling psychological forces that lurk beneath the surface of everyday contemporary life.

What??

I enjoyed this very much. I was NOT ready for it to end but, clearly, the author was over it. It seemed she just got tired of writing and stopped. I was stunned that the story was over. Oh, well.. It was great while it lasted.
