Ian Hart stars in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation, as Patricia Highsmith's infamous Ripley. Tom Ripley detests murder unless it is absolutely necessary. He prefers someone else to do the dirty work. But if he's called on to act there is no one more cool, calculating and clever. In the last Ripley story, Ripley Under Water, strange new neighbours show an overdeveloped interest in Ripley's past. Will Tom's shady dealings finally be exposed? Tense, thrilling and atmospheric, the last of five dramatisations that are perfect evocations of Highsmith's unique, complex and brilliantly twisted crime novels.
