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.

About the Author

Patricia Highsmith (1921-1995) was the author of more than twenty novels, including Strangers on a Train, The Price of Salt and The Talented Mr. Ripley, as well as numerous short stories.

Industry Reviews

In The Talented Mr Ripley, Highsmith introduced an amoral, vacuous and shape shifting hero in Tom Ripley, a man in some ways reminiscent of Fitzgerald's Gatsby, who was destined to make return appearances in her later books. First published in 1955, it tells the tale of Ripley's all-expenses-paid escapade from a depressing New York where he is walking on the wrong side of the law, to a glamorous Italian Riviera, to persuade a rich ship-builder's son to return home. But instead of bringing Dickie back to his dying mother, Ripley turns schizophrenic murderer, and assumes Dickie's priveleged lifestyle for himself. A chilling account of a charming, coldblooded killer which has rightly become a classic. --
