Ripley's Game

by Patricia Highsmith

Ripley's Game Synopsis

Tom Ripley detested murder. Unless it was absolutely necessary. Wherever possible, he preferred someone else to do the dirty work. In this case someone with no criminal record, who would commit 'two simple murders' for a very generous fee.

Ripley's Game Press Reviews

It seems to me she has reached a point where because she knows exactly what she is about she cannot miss * The Times * To call Patricia Highsmith a thriller writer is true but not the whole truth: her books have stylistic texture, psychological depth, mesmeric readability * Sunday Times *
