    "A classic Hitchcock thriller. Tennis chap Guy Haines meets dissipated playboy bruno antony on a train and they get to talking about their troubles. Seems Bruno knows a good bit about Guys woes with his wife wanting to dump him for another beau and his new attraction to another woman. Bruno too has his dismay with his demanding father. He puts out a suggestion that they swap murders so neither one of them look suspicious because there would be no motive for them wanting to kill a perfect stranger they did not know. Guy thinks Bruno is not serious and dismisses him thinking he will never see him again after the little train ride. But he is wrong. He does visit and trail the wife around and strangles her in a park. He then comes to Guy expecting him to oblige him with the murder of his father. Guy thinks he is insane and tries to get him out of his life, but Bruno is sticking to his wishes and begans to approach the people he knows showing up in uninvited places to put pressure on Guy. Bruno, Robert Walker, is especially memorable as a psychopath who doesn't understand why annoying people shouldn't be murdered. There is also a great merry-go-round crash scene."

    "Pretty good book. Very suspenseful but drags on for a little near the start. The characters are very well thought out and the end left me on edge!"

    "This book gives a combination of, goodness its getting late, maybe I should read something more peaceful, nah I NEED to know what happens next. While it leaves you on the edge of your seat wanting more, it does a very good job of pacing the stroyline and developing the characters so they become more realistic and in turn relate able. Definitely a must read this holiday season "
