Found in the Street

Found in the Street

‘Uncomfortable, frightening, compulsive and, worst of all, terribly believable. It’s vintage Highsmith’ 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.

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