9780099286592: The Boy Who Followed Ripley

When a troubled young runaway arrives on Tom Ripley's French estate, he is drawn into a world he thought he'd left behind, the seedy underworld of Berlin and kidnapping plots, lies and deception.

Ripley becomes the boy's protector as a friendship develops between the young man with a guilty conscience and the older one with no conscience at all.

"Peerlessly disturbing...bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night with the sense that an awful possibility has been articulated only to be left unresolved" ( New Yorker)
