People Who Knock on the Door - Patricia Highsmith

Well, well, I'd hate to predict a Highsmith novel because it is impossible, but I think I can see where this is going. 

 

I believe that so far everything that has happened to Arthur is Highmith being a vengeful goddess, who loves messing with her characters, and making him regret a moment when he felt contentment on page 13. 

 

Now, Arthur's life is unraveling like that of Job.

 

I'm kinda hooked.

 

Rage, Arthur, rage against the author!
