Críticas:

[An] impeccable portrait . . . a hugely compelling read, jam-packed full of tensions and psychological insight, all beautifully observed. -- Eithne Farry * Sunday Express * This novel is the real deal. Beautifully written and a must for all Highsmith fans. * Phyllis Nagy, scriptwriter of the film CAROL * This novel is one wonderful long riff on Patricia Highsmith . . . Unsettling, sexy and gripping * Tim Pears * Fantastically moody and appealingly unhinged - a piece of sophisticated literary ventriloquism that achieves a wonderful blurring of the lines between fact and fantasy. -- Sarah Waters * Summer Reads, Guardian * An intoxicating, shadowy narrative . . . [Dawson's] imagined version of events will delight Highsmith's fans * Crime Scene magazine * An assured and visceral page-turner, as convincing as it is bold -- Stephanie Cross * Lady * A dark tale of madness and murder, of obsession and delusion, that's worthy of Highsmith herself -- Sarra Manning * Red * Dawson skilfully constructs a dark tale that Highsmith fans will love -- Nick Rennison * Sunday Times * Dawson has drawn a witty, creepy plot as well as a convincing character sketch of a woman all too easy to caricature -- Jake Kerridge * Daily Telegraph * A beautifully crafted and utterly riveting blend of fact and fiction about a fascinating 20th-century figure. -- Carla McKay * Daily Mail * An ingenious concept . . . Dawson can be applauded for her passionate immersion in her subject, and for creating a novel as dark and odd as the subject herself. -- Joanna Briscoe * Guardian * You do not need to be a passionate Highsmith fan to admire this beautifully written and elegant novel, but I think it will particularly appeal to those who have read her books and know something about her life; they should recognise many of the allusions and ideas -- Jessica Mann * Literary Review * Ventriloquy is Dawson's forte . . . this fascinating, skilfully constructed novel builds a convincing picture of Patricia Highsmith -- Andrew Taylor * Spectator * THE CRIME WRITER represents an astonishing act of literary ventriloquism, easily on a par with THE MASTER, Colm Toibin's fine novel about Henry James. -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday * It's brilliant * Paula Hawkins *

Reseña del editor:

'Brilliant' Paula Hawkins In 1964, the eccentric American novelist Patricia Highsmith is hiding out in a cottage in Suffolk, to concentrate on her writing and escape her fans. She has another motive too - a secret romance with a married lover based in London. Unfortunately it soon becomes clear that all her demons have come with her. Prowlers, sexual obsessives, frauds, imposters, suicides and murderers: the tropes of her fictions clamour for her attention, rudely intruding on her peaceful Suffolk retreat. After the arrival of Ginny, an enigmatic young journalist bent on interviewing her, events take a catastrophic turn. Except, as always in Highsmith's troubled life, matters are not quite as they first appear . . . Masterfully recreating Highsmith's much exercised fantasies of murder and madness, Jill Dawson probes the darkest reaches of the imagination in this novel - at once a brilliant portrait of a writer and an atmospheric, emotionally charged, riveting tale.
