Like ghosts enacting a murder mystery.

A Game for the Living - Patricia Highsmith

 This was a buddy read with BrokenTune and Lillelara.


Lelia is murdered.

And no one really seems to care.


Except Ramon, but all he seems to want to do is confess whether he did it or not.

And that seems to stem mostly from his religious views and mild brain damage from a heavy beating he received from the police in jail years before.  


Though he did love her. That's the only thing that seems real.


Everyone else is just drifting around and interacting like puppets in a play reading lines.

And everything is scattered. Information just barely touched on with no real depth.


Very unfulfilling all the way around.
