Liked this Highsmith much less than anything else I've read by her. I like the premise, I like the story and it was gripping, strange, and dark enough, but somehow the characters never came alive for me. which has never really happened to me in a highsmith book. the hardest thing for me was to understand walter-- he seemed so ugly and unattractive, yet he was supposed to be a young, successful and attractive lawyer. someone who a mild-mannered and pretty musician could fall in love with.
but, it is still a highsmith book with its weirdness and odd pointed darkness.
