The No.1 Greatest Crime Writer' The Times
Ripley wanted out. Wanted money, success - the good life. Was willing to kill for it. . . . . . . . He is struggling to stay one step ahead of his creditors when a chance acquaintance offers him a free trip to Europe. When his new-found happiness is threatened, his response is as swift as it is shocking.
“Ripley, amoral, hedonistic and charming, is a genuinely original creation”
“As haunting and harrowing a study of a schizophrenic murdered as paper will bear. A glittering addition to the meagre ranks of people who make books that you really can't put down”
“Precisely plotted, stylishly written and kept alert by an icy wit. Streets ahead of the conventional thriller: a cool little classic of its kind”
“An outstanding thriller which has deservedly become a classic”
