A Suspension of Mercy
Date: November 2015
Duration: 7 hours 18 minutes
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 thirty 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.
“A curious and absorbing novel.”—New York Times Book Review
