Book Recommendation: This Sweet Sickness by Patricia Highsmith (1961)

Psychopathic loner David Kelsey has resolved to rekindle his relationship with his beloved Annabelle and make her his wife.  In David’s eyes, the fact that Annabelle is now married to someone else presents only a small obstacle…

In true Highsmith fashion, in David Kelsey, she has masterfully created a layered character who is absolutely detestable yet for whom the reader can sympathize. This novel is thick with psychological suspense and a darkly entertaining read.
