10 out of 10

A brilliant series of short stories, some truly macabre (what's with all the snails!!) to the seriously disturbing like The Heroine.Unlike other short story writers, I find this author takes her stories right to the end, you don't need anymore and you're never left feeling cheated out of a good ending. The Graham Greene introduction surprised me as I didn't realise Patricia Highsmith was a heavyweight ..but then i read she also wrote 'The Talented Mr Ripley'. For me, my favourite was When the Fleet was in at Mobile..it's heartbreaking.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Sent to the winner of the Halloween sweepstakes. Sorry it's a bit early, on holiday around that time. Though strictly not spooky, it's more a series of horror tales which could make you feel a bit spooky..you'll never look at a snail quite the same!

8 out of 10

A collection of short stories. I'd read 'The Terrapin' before and enjoyed it, in a creepy twisted kind of way, and the collection contained some other gems. 'Creepy and twisted' covers most of them, though Highsmith also goes for more overt horror (giant man-eating snails!) and more subtle disturbance. I enjoyed this.
