Love is what interests me. It’s just that love is indivisible from murder.

It’s 1995 in the Swiss Alps and the ailing reclusive crime writer Patricia Highsmith is visited by a genial young man from her New York publisher, sent to convince her to write the final instalment of her best-selling Mr Ripley series. What first appears to be a standard cat-and-mouse game of wit and wiles, soon becomes a dance to the death. Who is the cat and who is the mouse? And… who will make it out of Switzerland alive?

A chilling and sometimes hilarious two-hander, with Murray-Smith’s signature lucid-lettered prose.

‘A gripping psychological thriller. Creeps up on you and then has you on the edge of your seat.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Joanna Murray-Smith demonstrates a Stoppardian gift for pithily combining intelligence, wit and pathos.’ Independent

‘The quality of [Murray-Smith’s] work transcends national boundaries in its acute exploration of the psychological states that determine social outcomes.’ Age
