People Who Knock on the Door - Patricia Highsmith

Every time the character of Eddie Howell turns up in the story, I just really want him to be struck down by lightning.

 

Or be eaten by a snail.

 

Unfortunately, neither is likely to happen in this book.

 

What a smarmy, patronising, self-righteous, meddling, dumbass git.
