'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 expects.

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