Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

From the I can't believe this is out of print department comes Highsmith's white-knuckler and the basis of the Hitchcock film of the same name. With this, her first novel, Highsmith set the pattern she would follow in later books, introducing sociopaths who are so subtle they can pass unnoticed in the world around them.
Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.


“An incredible study of psychological torture and how fine the membrane is between normality and the underlying darkness.”
- Tana French

Strangers on a Train is a moral-vertigo thriller: Crime and Punishment for a post-atomic age.”
- Tom Nolan, The Los Angeles Times

Strangers on a Train is filled with paranoia and anxiety, and through its twists and turns, we, like poor Guy Haines, are also drawn into psychopath Bruno's web.”
- Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes

“A moody and disturbing excavation of guilty paranoia…Strangers on a Train was her debut novel, but [Highsmith's] sense of anxious foreboding was already fully formed.”
- Leonard Cassuto, Wall Street Journal

“Unfathomably great.”
- Errol Morris

“One is held by an evil kind of suspense…a rarely perceptive study in criminal psychology.”
- New York Herald Tribune
