Summary

Living on his French estate with his elegant heiress wife, Tom Ripley, on the cusp of middle age, is no longer the striving chancer of The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Having accrued considerable wealth through a long career of crime, he tires of his idyllic retirement. Highsmith's chameleon longs to get back in the game, so when a friend needs a favour, he relishes the opportunity.

Tom Ripley detests murder. Unless it is absolutely necessary. Wherever possible, he prefers someone else to do the dirty work. In this case someone with no criminal record who can be manipulated to commit 'two simple murders' for a very generous fee.

Ripley's Game is followed by The Boy Who Followed Ripley and Ripley Under Water.

Classic, you won't be disappointed

I can't get enough of Ripley or indeed Highsmith. A master of suspense at play. the world she creates is so detailed and believable. The performance of the Narrator strikes just the right pace and tone. loved it from start to finish.
