Publisher's Summary

David Kelsey has an invincible conviction that life is going to work out just as he has planned it - if he can just fix 'the situation'.
His one true love, the brilliant, beautiful Annabelle, has married another man. But that doesn't mean they can't still be friends. And even though she is pregnant with her husband Gerald's baby, that surely doesn't mean she won't one day get back together with David. She still loves him, of that he is certain.
David is sure she'll take him back and, under an alias, is setting up a wonderful home for the two of them in a town close by. And everything is just about going to plan until things take a murderous turn, leaving David a desperate man on the run.

Not her best book!

Would you try another book written by Patricia Highsmith or narrated by William Hope?

I would buy another Patricia Highsmith book.

Would you listen to another book narrated by William Hope?

Yes, William Hope was a good narrator.

Do you think This Sweet Sickness needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, Dave committed suicide and there was nothing left to know about.

Any additional comments?

The other books I've read by Patricia Highsmith have had a more likeable protagonist. She is a great writer and certainly knows how to make her readers feel for her characters.
