Publisher's Summary

Two men meet in the picturesque backstreets of Athens. Chester MacFarlane is a conman with multiple false identities, near the end of his rope and on the run with his young wife Colette. Rydal Keener is a young drifter looking for adventure: He finds it in one evening as the law catches up to Chester and Colette, and their fates become fatally entwined.
Patricia Highsmith draws us deep into a cross-European game of cat and mouse in this masterpiece of suspense from the author of The Talented Mr Ripley. Now a major film starring Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac (Drive, Inside Llewelyn Davis).


What the Critics Say

"An offbeat, provocative and absorbing suspense novel." (The New York Times)
"Shifts of ground stand metaphor for shifts in relationship; psychology is beautifully interleaved with a gritty genius loci" (Library Journal)
