RARA-AVIS: Patricia Highsmith: A Thumbs Up

From: Ed Lynskey ( e_lynskey@yahoo.com)

Finished reading Patricia Highsmith's
"Supension of Mercy" a couple of days ago. I needed a change of pace and the author delivered. This was my first encounter with her, too.

While not gritty hb/noir, she definitely can write a character-driven work while pulling off some interesting and original twists.

Does she write anything more noirish? Recommendations?
