The Cry of the Owl

The Cry of the Owl

£8.99

Robert Forester didn’t look like the kind of man to be a prowler. His ex-wife has told the police he was erratic, liable to violence and has even fired a gun at her. Maybe he was a psychopathic murderer.

'Extraordinary... one of her finest novels' Guardian

"If everybody in the world didn't keep watching to see what everybody else did, we'd all go berserk."

Jenny believes that sighting an owl is a portent of death. When she spots a stranger looking in through her window one night, she believes that he is an omen too. But fate doesn't work in the way that either of them expect.

This novel of suspense and paranoia draws on Highsmith's own experience of being a stalker.
