The Talented Mr Ripley

by Patricia Highsmith

The Talented Mr Ripley Synopsis

'The No.1 Greatest Crime Writer' The Times 'Ripley, amoral, hedonistic and charming, is a genuinely original creation' Daily Telegraph Tom Ripley is struggling to stay one step ahead of his creditors and the law, when an unexpected acquaintance offers him a free trip to Europe and a chance to start over. Ripley wants money, success and the good life and he's willing to kill for it. When his new-found happiness is threatened, his response is as swift as it is shocking. **One of the BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**

The Talented Mr Ripley Press Reviews

An outstanding thriller which has deservedly become a classic * Spectator * Precisely plotted, stylishly written and kept alert by an icy wit. Streets ahead of the conventional thriller: a cool little classic of its kind * Evening Standard * As haunting and harrowing a study of a schizophrenic murder as paper will bear. A glittering addition to the meagre ranks of people who make books that you really can't put down * Sunday Times * Ripley, amoral, hedonistic and charming, is a genuinely original creation * Daily Telegraph *
