Ripley had kept his name and reputation clean, amazingly clean, considering. It would be most embarrassing for him if his interest in the Buckmaster Gallery were made public. The gallery is staging another Derwatt exhibition. But now an American collector claims that the expensive masterpiece he bought three years ago is a fake, it is of course. And he wants to talk to Derwatt. But he inconveniently is dead. Ripley needs the perfect solution. But not everyone's nerves are as steady as his. Especially if it comes to murder...

From the Inside Flap:

In this harrowing illumination of the psychotic mind, the enviable Tom Ripley has a lovely house in the French countryside, a beautiful and very rich wife, and an art collection worthy of a connoisseur. But such a gracious life has not come easily. One inopportune inquiry, one inconvenient friend, and Ripley's world will come tumbling down--unless he takes decisive steps. In a mesmerizing novel that coolly subverts all traditional notions of literary justice, Ripley enthralls us even as we watch him perform acts of pure and unspeakable evil.
