Tom Ripley lives by his wits. Right now he’s lying low in New York, trying to stay one step ahead of his creditors and the law. But his luck changes when a rich acquaintance suddenly offers him a free trip to Italy. Nice! Tom wants money, success and the good life. And he finds all those things in his new friendship with the handsome, carefree, spoiled Dickie Greenleaf – whom Tom both idolises and envies. Who said all dreams come to an end? Not this one. Tom is ready to kill to keep his dream. In fact, he’ll do whatever it takes. And there’s more than one way to take a life…
