A Suspension of Mercy - Patricia Highsmith

This is an unusual story. I think the rural English setting does something to tone down the intensity of the underlying dysfunctional relationship. 

Sydney is a total psycho, tho.


And I definitely do not trust the sense of calm in this story. Not one bit.

There is something brewing, and my guess is that it is about to be unleashed.
