About the Author
Ira Levin is the author of The Boys from Brazil, Rosemary's Baby, Son of Rosemary, The Stepford Wives, This Perfect Day, Sliver, and A Kiss Before Dying (for which he won the Edgar Award). Levin was also the recipient of three Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allan Poe Awards. His website is iralevin.org.
Here is not merely an extraordinary first but an extraordinary suspense novel by the highest professional standards;
and you have an evening of incomparable excitement ahead
of you. Levin combines great talent for pure novel writing
with strict whodunit tricks as dazzling as anything ever
brought off by Ellery Queen or Agatha Christie.
— Anthony Boucher
The book is a succession of quite legitimate surprises, the
suspense is admirably sustained, the detail is thorough and
convincing, and the writing is considerably above the level
usually associated with fictional crime and passion. A pleasure to recommend.
