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.
