Description

‘The No.1 Greatest Crime Writer’ The Times

‘Ripley, amoral, hedonistic and charming, is a genuinely original creation’ Daily Telegraph

‘He is using you for what you are worth’

Tom Ripley wants money, success, and the good life – and he’s willing to kill for it.Struggling to stay one step ahead of his creditors, and the law, Ripley leaps at the chance to start afresh on a free trip to Europe. But when his new-found happiness is threatened, his response is as swift as it is shocking.

This is the first in Highsmith’s classic series featuring the character of Tom Ripley. The Talented Mr Ripley also inspired the Academy Award-winning film starring Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law.

One of the BBC’s 100 Novels That Shaped Our World.

Publisher Review

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 *
