Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

This Sweet Sickness is, as we’ve come to expect from Patricia Highsmith, an impressive psychological study. Objectively yet compassionately she examines a young chemist who spends his weekends in a make-believe world in which that girl did not marry somebody else: and relentlessly she shows how his rejection of reality leads to disaster and death. The book has the compulsion of truth.” New York Times
“We defy you to put this book down once you have started. Highest rating!” Mystery Digest
“[This] Rorschach of a psychotic personality is a detailed, not a smudged, record of a schizoid’s double vision…and finally the two-way pattern leaves a single trail—for the police.” Kirkus Reviews
“No one has created psychological suspense more densely and deliciously satisfying.” Vogue, praise for the author
