Ripley Under Ground by Patricia Highsmith

Book Description

Ripley had kept his name and reputation clean, amazingly clean, considering. It would be most embarrassing for him if his interest in the Buckmaster Gallery were made public. The gallery is staging another Derwatt exhibition. But now 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 he inconveniently is dead. Ripley needs the perfect solution. But not everyone's nerves are as steady as his. Especially if it comes to murder...

Hechizo de Elsie by Patricia Highsmith Hechizo de Elsie, Paperback / softback (September 2016)

Ralph returns a strangers wallet that he found during a morning stroll through Greenwich Village, entirely unprepared for the complex maze of disturbing psychological intrigue he is about to be drawn into. Patricia Highsmith has once again created a most unsettling thriller.

Celda de Cristal by Patricia Highsmith Celda de Cristal, Paperback / softback (August 2016)

Falsely convicted, the easygoing Philip Carter is sentenced to six lonely, drug-ravaged years in prison. Upon his release, Carter is a more suspicious and violent man.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » If conscience is the fear of being found out Tom Ripley should have plenty on his after building a pleasant life on one murder and financing it from another, but he never turns a hair. Highsmith keeps us on tenterhooks again as the past threatens to surface, before saving him with a thumping stroke of luck. The question is, will she ever bring him to book? (Kirkus UK)

US Kirkus Review » Ripley is one of Patricia Highsmith's casually unconscionable miscreants; he lives in luxury in the south of France off a charming young wife and off the proceeds (via England) of a fraudulent art enterprise consisting of the canvases of a dead painter (forged). Now an American collector questions one of his acquisitions and Ripley kills him and goes on to improvise with outrageous flair. Sometimes you suspect that Miss Highsmith as well as Ripley is getting away with murder - but they both do it so elegantly. (Kirkus Reviews)
