Robert Forester is a fundamentally decent man who attracts trouble like a magnet, and when he begins watching the domestic simplicity of Jenny's life through her window, the deceptive calm of suburban Pennsylvania is shattered.

Review:

"Patricia Highsmith has an extraordinary talent for the sinister, and this is well revealed in The Cry of the Owl, one of her finest novels" (Robert Nye Guardian)

"Patricia Highsmith is a craftsman who has made the suspense novel her own domain" ( The Times)

"The basic nightmare situation - to be accused of a crime you did not commit and be unable to prove your innocence- is the subject of The Cry of the Owl... It's Kafka with a vengeance... compulsive" ( Spectator)

"A rare talent, a remarkable novelist... her books are written in elegant and lucid prose" (John Mortimer)

Book Description:

'The No.1 Greatest Crime Writer' - The Times
