Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Highsmith is a sensitive writer…By the time A Dog’s Ransom nears its end, one is fully involved with her characters and their plight. Without overwriting, without belaboring a point, she skillfully probes deeper and deeper. She has a good ear for dialogue, and the ability to underline character with only a few words, or the briefest snatch of conversation. Brava, bravissima!” New York Times
