A stunning hardback edition of one of the most influential, groundbreaking crime novels ever written.


‘I’m a huge Highsmith fan. If there’s one book I wish I’d written, it’s The Talented Mr Ripley‘ Sarah Waters



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 confident man, whose talent for murder and self-invention is chronicled in four subsequent Ripley novels.

Reviews

I'm a huge Highsmith fan. If there's one book I wish I'd written, it's The Talented Mr Ripley
Sarah Waters
An outstanding thriller which has deservedly become a classic
The Times
The Italian coastal scenes, beautiful cast and sense of summer languor that disguises evil impulses make this a disturbing but gorgeous read.
Independent
I love [Highsmith] so much . . . what a revelation her writing was
Gillian Flynn, Wall Street Journal
I love that [Highsmith] makes this sociopath so completely charming that you're rooting for him
Gillian Flynn - 'My Top 5 thrillers', Mail on Sunday
Ripley - amoral, hedonistic and charming - is a genuinely original creation. It is hard to imagine anyone interested in modern fiction who has not read the Ripley novels
Daily Telegraph
The Italian coastal scenes, beautiful cast and sense of summer languor that disguises evil impulses make this a disturbing but gorgeous read.
