‘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**

Publisher Review

“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. A glittering addition to the meagre ranks of people who make books that you really can’t put down” * Sunday Times * “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 * “An outstanding thriller which has deservedly become a classic” * Spectator *
