Produktbeschreibung
In a chilling literary hall of mirrors, Patricia Highsmith introduces Tom Ripley. Like a hero in a latter-day Henry James novel, he is sent to Italy with a commission to coax a prodigal young American back to his wealthy father. But Ripley finds himself very fond of Dickie Greenleaf. He wants to be like him - exactly like him. Suave, agreeable, and utterly amoral, Ripley stops at nothing - certainly not only one murder - to accomplish his goal. Turning the mystery form inside out, Highsmith shows the terrifying abilities afforded to a man unhindered by the concept of evil. Der kleine Gauner Tom Ripley soll Dickie Greenleaf, den Sohn eines reichen Fabrikanten, aus Italien nach Amerika zurückholen. Er findet ihn und lernt das süße Leben kennen. Ihm sollte das schöne Geld gehören! Ripley erkennt seine Chance. Er lässt Dickie verschwinden und beginnt ein raffiniertes Doppelspiel.
