Description
This 1955 novel from Patricia Highsmith introduces one of the most brilliant, if twisted, characters of 20th-century fiction. Tom Ripley is struggling to stay one step ahead of his creditors and the law when an unexpected acquaintance offers him a free trip to Europe and a chance to start over. Circumstances and opportunities transform him from a petty perpetrator of fraud into a suave, agreeable, and totally amoral artist of crime, who will stop at nothing—certainly not a simple murder—to get what he desires.

"Patricia Highsmith's novels are 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."—The New Yorker
