‘Marvellously, insanely readable… Highsmith has done it again’ The Times
“There’s no such thing as a perfect murder… That’s just a parlor game, trying to dream one up.”
Tom Ripley is enjoying his wealthy lifestyle in France, until an associate asks him to kill someone again. But Ripley detests murder, unless it is absolutely necessary. Someone else should do the dirty work for them – yes, someone with no criminal record could earn a very generous fee for doing a couple of simple murders.
Ripley’s Game is the third book in Highsmith’s Ripley series, and was made into a film starring John Malkovich.
