SWITZERLAND

by Joanna Murray-Smith

Love is what interests me. It’s just that love is indivisible from murder.

It’s 1995 in the Swiss Alps and the ailing reclusive crime writer Patricia Highsmith is visited by a genial young man from her New York publisher, sent to convince her to write the final instalment of her best-selling Mr Ripley series. What first appears to be a standard cat-and-mouse game of wit and wiles, soon becomes a dance to the death. Who is the cat and who is the mouse? And… who will make it out of Switzerland alive?
A chilling and sometimes hilarious two-hander, with Murray-Smith’s signature lucid-lettered prose.

A gripping psychological thriller. Creeps up on you and then has you on the edge of your seat.’ Sunday Telegraph

Joanna Murray-Smith demonstrates a Stoppardian gift for pithily combining intelligence, wit and pathos.’ Independent
