"Hey! Cheeses, what an idea! I kill your wife and you kill my father! We meet on a train, see, and nobody knows we know each other! Perfect alibis! Catch?" Two men meet on a train journey. Both have a problem they could live without, but one has a murderous solution. From this moment, almost against his conscious will, Guy Haines is trapped in a nightmare of shared guilt and an insidious merging of personalities with Charles Bruno. Patricia Highsmith's short but dazzling 1950 debut novel is a masterwork of psychological suspense, inspiring the classic Alfred Hitchcock film and numerous other adaptations.
