A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Anyone who enjoys intelligent crime fiction should read Patricia Highsmith, the uncontested queen of the murky psychological thriller where areas of grey predominate. If all you know of her, like many, are her Ripley series and Strangers on a Train or other film adaptations, the reissue programme by Vintage over the coming year of her complete backlist is an occasion for celebration (and delightful new covers). Sharp-edged characterisation with a wicked sense of humour, dispassionate portraits of psychopaths whose attraction can often not be denied and clockwork plots with Swiss-watch precision are just some of the delights in store and this initial batch of three splendid and devious novels is the right place to start. Classics that feel still as immediate today as decades ago.
