In A Game for the Living threads of sexual jealousy and guilt are shot through with all Patricia Highsmith's uncanny talent for the unexpected.

'Ram n had done it. Obviously! He thought about Ram n, his Catholic soul trapped in his passion for Lelia. He'd find Ram n and see that he paid with his life for what he had done.'

Mild-mannered Theo is a wealthy German expatriate; hot-tempered Ram n was born into poverty in Mexico City. The two men are unlikely friends - especially as they are in love with the same woman. When Lelia is found brutally murdered, both lovers are suspects - and each suspects the other. But then they discover that a thief was seen at Lelia's apartment, and their hunt leads them on a frantic chase to sun-drenched Acapulco. Theo begins to get the uneasy feeling that his every move is being watched.
