Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith
Book DescriptionSince his debut in 1955, Tom Ripley has evolved into the ultimate bad boy sociopath. Here, in this first Ripley novel, we are introduced to suave Tom Ripley, a young striver, newly arrived in the heady world of Manhattan. A product of a broken home, branded a "sissy" by his dismissive Aunt Dottie, Ripley meets a wealthy industrialist who hires him to bring his playboy son, Dickie Greenleaf, back from gallivanting in Italy. Soon Ripley's fascination with Dickie's debonair lifestyle turns obsessive as he finds himself enraged by Dickie's ambivalent affections for Marge, a charming American dilettante. A dark reworking of Henry James's ?The Ambassadors?, ?The Talented Mr. Ripley? serves as an unforgettable introduction to this smooth confidence man, whose talent for murder and self-invention is chronicled in four subsequent Ripley novels.

Books By Author 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.
Strangers on a Train, Hardback (September 2016)
The classic thriller behind the Hitchcock film, and Highsmith's first novel - soon to be remade by David Fincher, director of Gone Girl, with a screenplay by Gillian Flynn.
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. The Glass Cell's bleak and compelling portrait of prison life is as relevant today as it was when the book was first published in 1964.
