The Talented Mr. Ripley

Tom Ripley is struggling to stay afloat, financially and socially, in 1950s New York. Having failed at several jobs, he is dabbling in small-time fraud and living on the charity of friends. One day, a chance encounter results in him travelling to Italy, supposedly to persuade Dickie Greenleaf, the playboy son of a shipping magnate, to come home. Dickie's charm and lifestyle prove irresistible to Ripley and he embarks on a path from which there is no going back . . .

The Talented Mr Ripley is the unforgettable introduction to this debonair anti-hero, whose talent for self-invention and calculated murder is further chronicled in four subsequent novels, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley's Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley and Ripley Under Water.
