Patricia Highsmith, the author of The Two Faces of January, Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley, is widely respected for her psychological novels. This collection contains five of her intelligent and thought-provoking books.

Edith's Diary is considered by many to be Highsmith's masterpiece and follows the life of Edith Howland as she slips out of control and loses her grip on reality; A Suspension of Mercy is an unsettling thriller looking at the darker forces that lurk beneath the surface of everyday life; and Those Who Walk Away follows a deadly game of cat and mouse that takes place on the streets of Venice.

After receiving a fan letter from a prison inmate and becoming fascinated on the effect being trapped in a cell can do to an adult, Highsmith put these thoughts into fiction with The Glass Cell: Philip Carter spent six years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. His wife was waiting for him upon his release and he had no reason to doubt her or their friend, Sullivan. But prison can change people.

Little Tales of Misogyny contains 17 short stories that are laced with black humour. Simply spine-chilling, they show how next-door neighbours can be sadistic psychopaths and how there's always something extraordinarily macabre in the supposedly ordinary...
