I love the 1991 movie based on this book, which is a remake of the old Robert Wagner original, but the novel is even better. Ira Levin has a very simple, clear writing style, but builds very memorable scenes and characters.

If you're not familiar with Ira Levin, he also authored the novel Rosemary's Baby (which was adapted by Polanski to make the film version you probably know of). Great writer, give him a try.

One of the best mysteries I have ever read. It was a definite page-turner all the way to the end!

This was a good book. It had a very clever idea for a who-done-it that could only be done in a book to be affective(i.e. the use of pronouns instead of the characters name) I found myself hoping the bad guy got away with it for some reason. Clever writing but a little boring on his prose.

If you like a good mystery, you'll love this book! Halfway through, you'll come to this realization that will have you flipping back through the book to see what you've missed. It's quite a unique plot device.
