Summary

Tom Ripley is now the owner of a beautiful estate in France, a wealthy art collector and married to an heiress.

The Buckmaster Gallery is staging an exhibition by the celebrated artist Derwatt, but an American collector claims that the expensive masterpiece he bought three years ago is a fake. It is, of course, and he wants to talk to Derwatt - but Derwatt, inconveniently, is dead. Ripley needs the perfect solution to keep his role in the fraud a secret and his reputation clean, but not everyone's nerves are as steady as his. Especially when it comes to murder.

Ripley Under Ground is an ingenious audiobook of masks and identity, illusion and reality, and is followed by Ripley's Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley and Ripley Under Water.

Disappointing sequel...<br />

There is nothing worse than not wanting to finish a book, but I was always hoping this would get better, unfortunately it never did.
unbelievable plot and unconvincing characters made this such a disappointment after what was such a fantastic first book in the series.

Very disappointing

Well narrated. Starts well ... Rambling, disappointing ending. It felt like a waste of time, having listened to it.
