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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Highsmith is a sensitive writer…By the time A Dog’s Ransom nears its end, one is fully involved with her characters and their plight. Without overwriting, without belaboring a point, she skillfully probes deeper and deeper. She has a good ear for dialogue, and the ability to underline character with only a few words, or the briefest snatch of conversation. Brava, bravissima!”
