This is my review of the book The Two Faces of January by Patricia Highsmith which I read recently. The book was recommended by a friend who is an avid reader. I don't think I have read any of Patriciia books before so I was not knowing what to expect.
The story was an enjoyable chase across Greece. The two main characters in the story are a couple of villains, a conman Chester MacFarlane and a drifter Rydal Keener. Chester has a beautiful younger wife who of course falls for Rydal. Then through a series of unfortunate events a detective who is investigating Chester is killed. Rydal helps clear up the mess and then the two are fatally entwined.
An enjoyable book that keeps you guessing who will get the upper hand and survive and who will be handed over to the authorities. Their antics were just about believable which always helps in a story like this. To say much more would spoil the plot. A book that is ideal for a rainy day sitting in front of the fire dreaming about the heat of the Mediterranean.
I will keep my eyes open for More of Patricia's books to read in the future.
I will record this as book 34 week 27 fiction 32 (audio books 5) non fiction 2
