'I love Highsmith so much . . . What a revelation her writing is' Gillian Flynn'Ramon had done it.

Obviously! He thought about Ramon, his Catholic soul trapped in his passion for Lelia.

He'd find Ramon and see that he paid with his life for what he had done.'In A Game for the Living threads of sexual jealousy and guilt are shot through with all Patricia Highsmith's uncanny talent for the unexpected. Mild-mannered Theo is a wealthy German expatriate; hot-tempered Ramon was born into poverty in Mexico City.

The two men are unlikely friends - especially as they are in love with the same woman.

When Lelia is found brutally murdered, both lovers are suspects - and each suspects the other.

But then they discover that a thief was seen at Lelia's apartment, and their hunt leads them on a frantic chase to sun-drenched Acapulco.

Theo begins to get the uneasy feeling that his every move is being watched.
