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

Review:

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 that [Highsmith] makes this sociopath so completely charming that you're rooting for him (Gillian Flynn - 'My Top 5 thrillers' Mail on Sunday)

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)

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)

I love [Highsmith] so much . . . what a revelation her writing was (Gillian Flynn Wall Street Journal)

The Italian coastal scenes, beautiful cast and sense of summer languor that disguises evil impulses make this a disturbing but gorgeous read. (Joanna Briscoe Independent)
