Abstract:

"A Kiss Before Dying not only debuted the talent of best-selling novelist Ira Levin; it also set a new standard in the art of mystery and suspense. Now a modern classic, as gripping in its tautly plotted action as it is penetrating in its exploration of a criminal mind, it tells the shocking tale of a young man who will literally stop at nothing to get where he wants to go. For he has dreams; plans. He also has charm, good looks, sex appeal, intelligence. And he has a problem. Her name is Dorothy; she loves him, and she's pregnant. The solution, he realizes, may demand desperate measures. But, then, he looks like the kind of guy who could get away with murder."--Jacket.
