The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith
'As haunting and harrowing a study of a schizophrenic murder as paper will bear.' - The Sunday Times
Tom Ripley is struggling to stay one step ahead of his creditors and the law, when an unexpected acquaintance offers him a free trip to Europe and a chance to start over.
Ripley wants money, success and the good life and he's willing to kill for it. When his new-found happiness is threatened, his response is as swift as it is shocking.
Our favourite quote: 'He liked the fact that Venice had no cars. It made the city human. The streets were like veins, he thought, and the people were the blood, circulating everywhere.'
