Overview

Collected here in this stunning, boxed-set edition, The Complete Ripley Novels celebrates one of fiction’s most iconic literary characters.
First published in 2008, The Complete Ripley Novels, brilliantly designed in a handsome slipcase, sold out its initial run. This collector’s item, featuring all five classic Ripley novels—The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley’s Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley, and Ripley Under Water—returns with a new printing on the twentieth anniversary of Patricia Highsmith’s death in 1995. The Highsmith literary renaissance, initially sparked by a 1999 film adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley—which introduced fans and new readers alike to the unforgettable Tom Ripley, the debonair confidence man with a talent for self-invention and murder—continues in full force with three major Highsmith movies in the offing as well as the republication of this volume, “the most sinister and strangely alluring quintet the crime fiction genre has ever produced” (Entertainment Weekly).

Editorial Reviews

New York Times
[Highsmith] forces us to re-evaluate the lines between reason and madness, normal and abnormal, while goading us into sharing her treacherous hero's point of view.— Michiko Kakutani
Michiko Kakutani - New York Times
“[Highsmith] forces us to re-evaluate the lines between reason and madness, normal and abnormal, while goading us into sharing her treacherous hero's point of view.”
Los Angeles Times
“[...] Novel after novel, the waters are troubled, masks rearranged on the face, as Highsmith shows us an individual unencumbered by constraints of legality or morality. Ripley is truly a self-made man, bringing us to silent recognition of the selfsame treacherous longings coiled and waiting in our hearts....”
Publishers Weekly

More than 50 years after Highsmith first introduced him in The Talented Mr. Ripley(1955), fans of the dashing and dangerous Tom Ripley can enjoy all his adventures in one set-The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley's Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley and Ripley Under Water. Highsmith (1921-1991) first gained prominence with her 1950 novel, Strangers on a Train, adapted a year later to film by Alfred Hitchcock. But it was Ripley who cemented her name in the burgeoning genre of psychological suspense. From his first murder-of rich playboy Dickie Greenleaf in Talented-to his graceful fade into anonymity in Under Water, Ripley is everything crime fiction fans love in an (anti)hero: a charmingly slick killer who can worm his way out of anything.
