9780140101188: Game for the Living

Gentle, generous Theo would tell you that he feels quite logically happy about sharing Lelia with his best friend, Ramón.

Although the word 'logical' troubles him sometimes. (Can love ever be logical?) It is he, at any rate, who eventually finds Lelia dead in her painter's studio in Mexico City. She has been raped, her handsome face bloodily mutilated. Theo's thoughts immediately turn to Ramón as the natural suspect: hot tempered, moody, a man whose Catholic soul has already been damned by passion - unable to marry Lelia, unable to give her up . . .

A confession is made, but are we to believe it?

Product Description:

Set in Mexico, this is a coolly analytic study of friendship, neurosis, and grief as two good friends share the affections of one woman--and the pain, confusion and suspicion of her murder.

Book Description:

In A Game for the Living threads of sexual jealousy and guilt are shot through with all Patricia Highsmith's uncanny talent for the unexpected.
