The talented Mr. Ripley [kit] by Patricia Highsmith — Like a hero in a latter-day Henry James novel, Tom Ripley is sent to Italy with a commission to coax a prodigal young American back to his wealthy father. But Ripley finds himself so fond of Dickie Greenleaf that 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. Note: This kit contains 10 copies of the title.
