BY THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY, CAROL AND STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

‘ The original, the best, the gloriously twisted Queen of Suspense’ MARK BILLINGHAM

‘Her books have stylistic texture, psychological depth, mesmeric readability‘ SUNDAY TIMES


‘Uncomfortable, frightening, compulsive and, worst of all, terribly believable’ TIME OUT

On a stroll through Greenwich Village, security guard Ralph Linderman finds a wallet on the sidewalk. It belongs to Jack Sutherland, a wealthy aspiring artist, and it is his misfortune to have it returned to him – with all $263 and credit cards untouched. Because now Ralph knows where Jack lives.

Elsie Tyler is a beautiful young waitress – an innocent in New York – and Ralph feels he must protect her from ‘bad company’. When he sees Elsie leaving Jack’s apartment, he is not pleased. Not pleased at all. He is entirely unprepared for the complex maze of sexual obsession and disturbing psychological intrigue he is about to be drawn into.

By the author of The Talented Mr Ripley, Found in the Street is an unsettling thriller that explores the bleakest alleyways of human desire.

An extremely clever novel . . . there is no one quite like Highsmith
Anita Brookner
By her hypnotic art Patricia Highsmith puts the suspense story into a toweringly high place in the hierarchy of fiction
The Times
Intoxicating flavor and promise
Publishers Weekly
Highsmith was every bit as deviant and quirky as her mischievous heroes, and didn't seem to mind if everyone knew it
J. G. Ballard, Daily Telegraph
To call Patricia Highsmith a thriller writer is true but not the whole truth: her books have stylistic texture, psychological depth, mesmeric readability
Sunday Times
I love Highsmith so much . . . What a revelation her writing is
Gillian Flynn
One of the finest crime novelists
New York Times
Uncomfortable, frightening, compulsive and, worst of all, terribly believable
Time Out
Highsmith, a pioneer of the psychopathology thriller, is to some extent responsible for the high level of craft at work in that genre today
Kirkus Reviews
No one has created psychological suspense more densely and deliciously satisfying
Vogue
Highsmith is a giant of the genre. The original, the best, the gloriously twisted Queen of Suspense
