I started reading Highsmith's books after reading 'carol'. This is a fast paced story that keeps the reader gripped. I like the older fashioned style of writing and it was a book I couldn't put down. I wish there were more books as good as this! Thoroughly recommend it

This book cheered me up so much. Wonderful laugh out loud moments . Like other comments it was hard to divorce fact from fiction and I began to feel sorry for Barry and Edna. Better than Valium !,,,

A wonderful contrast to the canonised versions of the Kennedy story. It is both touching and funny. A good holiday read

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok, 30 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this following the rave reviews . I got half way through and got bored. I left it for a few weeks and went back to it and was glad I finished it. Not sure why it flagged in the middle. Not up to the standard of the previous stories I've read by the author
