The Talented Mr Ripley

Patricia Highsmith

Service95 Recommends is the home of the books we are loving and reviews from our contributors. The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith is a killer novel that follows Tom Ripley, a man of wealth and deceit, as he navigates lies and murder.

What we say: “Embark on a thrilling journey with Tom Ripley as he navigates a world of wealth and deceit, where lies and murder intertwine. Patricia Highsmith's masterful exploration of the dark depths of deception and social class is a formidable counterpart to the works of Fitzgerald. In this suspenseful tale, the boundaries between truth and fiction blur, creating a captivating narrative that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. Experience the power of Highsmith's words as she weaves together a story of murder, deceit, and social class that rivals the great works of literature.” - Jamie Styles

What they say: "As haunting and harrowing a study of a schizophrenic murder as paper will bear. A glittering addition to the meagre ranks of people who make books that you really can't put down" - The Sunday Times

Available on, Waterstones and Barnes & Noble
