Three classic crime novels by a master of the macabre The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, and Ripley's Game appear here together in hardcover for the first time. Suave, agreeable, and completely amoral, Patricia Highsmiths hero, the inimitable Tom Ripley, stops at nothing not even murder to accomplish his goals. In achieving the opulent life that he was denied as a child, Ripley shows himself to be a master of illusion and manipulation and a disturbingly sympathetic combination of genius and psychopath. Sent on a mission to Italy to coax an irresponsible young playboy back to his wealthy father in America, Ripley finds himself so fond of the young man that he sets out to be like him exactly like him. The precarious charade that ensues is the first step to a life of elegance and ease and perpetual danger. As she leads us through the mesmerizing tangle of Ripleys deadly and sinister games, Highsmith turns the mystery genre inside out and takes us into the mind of a man utterly indifferent to evil.

  1. En klassiker
    Arne Karlsson, 12 oktober 2020

    Det ingår nästan i den litterära allmänbildningen att ha läst denna klassiska serie av böcker. Filmad många gånger men när man läser den så kryper verkligen Tom Ripley in under skinnet. Rekommenderas.
