Tom Ripley travels to Italy with a commission to coax a prodigal young American back to his wealthy father. But Ripley finds himself very fond of Dickie Greenleaf. He wants to be like him - exactly like him. Suave, agreeable and utterly amoral, Ripley will stop at nothing to accomplish his goal. The Talented Mr. Ripley serves as an unforgettable introduction to this smooth confidence man, whose talent for murder and self-invention is chronicled in four subsequent Ripley novels.

It is hard to imagine anyone interested in modern fiction who has not read the Ripley novels * Daily Telegraph * I'm a huge Highsmith fan. If there's one book I wish I'd written, it's The Talented Mr Ripley -- Sarah Waters As haunting and harrowing a study of a schizophrenic murder as paper will bear.
