In a small Pennsylvania town, Robert Forrester is recuperating from a nasty divorce and a bout of psychological trouble. One evening, while driving home, he sees a pretty young woman framed by her bright kitchen window. Soon, he can’t keep himself away. But when Robert is inevitably discovered, obsession is turned on its head, and he finds himself unable to shake the young woman, nor entirely sure whether he should. From Patricia Highsmith, once called "the balladeer of stalking" by The New Yorker, The Cry of the Owl is a modern classic ready to be reborn.

Waste of time
As the book started out I thought it would get interesting. I kept telling myself that the author wrote "The Talented Mr Ripley" so it would be an interesting way of presenting compulsion/ obsession with twists and turns. However, it never got there. The ending, if that's what it is called...not just the end of the typeface, was enough to make me throw my ipad. Like I said, a complete waste of time.
Don't waste your time or money
Sophomoric, predictable, horrible ending
