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

‘Highsmith is a damn fine writer’ GUARDIAN

‘No one has created psychological suspense more densely and deliciously satisfying’ VOGUE

The setting is Venice, the characterisation brilliant, the style spare and superb’ DAILY MAIL

The honeymoon is over; the bride dead by her own hand. Ray Garrett, the grieving husband, convinces the police in Rome of his innocence, but not his father-in-law, Ed Coleman, who shoots him at point-blank range and leaves him for dead. Ray survives and follows Coleman to Venice, where the two fall into an eerie game of cat-and-mouse – Coleman obsessed with vengeance and Ray determined to save his reputation, and himself.

Those Who Walk Away simmers with violence and unease. As they switch between the roles of hunter and hunted, this tense psychological novel races towards a thrilling climax.
