“Ripley, amoral, hedonistic and charming, is a genuinely original creation” * Daily Telegraph * “As haunting and harrowing a study of a schizophrenic murder as paper will bear.

Streets ahead of the conventional thriller: a cool little classic of its kind” * Evening Standard * “An outstanding thriller which has deservedly become a classic” * Spectator *
