Description: Patricia Highsmith, author of Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Found in the Street, and many other books, is known as one of the finest living suspense novelists. In this book, she analyzes the key elements of suspense fiction, drawing upon her own experience in four decades as a writer. She talks, among other topics, about how to develop a complete story from an idea; what makes a plot gripping; the use (and abuse) of coincidence; characterization and the 'likable criminal'; going from first draft to final draft; and writing the suspense short story.
