Similarities with Patricia Highsmith, 23 Mar. 2011
A compelling reading as the mind of a criminal is released through the pages.Not an easy read at times if you like happy endings with loose ends all tied up. Ruth has experience as a probation officer to be sure of her characters and no hint of sentimentality pervades the pages,making the character unsympathetic very like Highsmith's Tom Ripley.I shall look forward
to her new book this summer.
