Many of the stories contain shocking plot twists designed to demonstrate the darkest aspects of human nature. In some cases these unexpected events are rather disturbing.
Recommended to readers who appreciate "slice of life" stories and are not put off by the prospect of experiencing some viscerally uncomfortable moments along the way.
Bottom line: enjoyable, disturbing stories for fans of Patricia Highsmith ... and those not acquainted with her works.
