Now part of American film and literary lore, Tom Ripley, "a bisexual psychopath and art forger who murders without remorse when his comforts are threatened" (New York Times Book Review), was Patricia Highsmith's favorite creation.
In The Boy Who Followed Ripley, Highsmith explores Ripley's bizarrely paternal relationship with a troubled young runaway, whose abduction draws them into Berlin's seamy underworld. More than any other American literary character, Ripley provides "a lens to peer into the sinister machinations of human behavior." (John Freeman, Pittsburgh Gazette).
"Ripley is an unmistakable descendant of Gatsby, that 'penniless young man without a past' who will stop at nothing." (Frank Rich)

Ripley coldly floats between two steep cliffs.

Once again, Ripley is a fascinating character
I like how Ripley has evolved and the various situations he is placed in.
the author has cleverly placed you inside the mind of Ripley. and a fascinating mind it is
I thought it was great how Ripley wore a ' costume ' and took on the kidnappers. Absolute genius of the imagination
this is not the most thrilling of the Ripley series, but you should give it your time.
