The Cry of the Owl - Patricia Highsmith

This book makes me anxious, primarily because Patricia Highsmith harps on a fear that possibly most human beings might have:


Making false decisions and by this being drawn into a spiral of false accusations, slander and the knowledge that noone is going to believe a single word that is coming out of your mouth.

(show spoiler)

Deeply disturbing and harrowing. As much as I want to finish this book tonight, I need a break from it. Otherwise I don´t think I´m going to fall asleep.
