This cloth covered box set of Patricia Highsmith’s five Mr. Ripley’s titles is as handsome, dark and cool as the protagonist who strolls with such suave nonchalance through this collection’s pages. Nearly as sensual in their look as they are cerebral in their content, followers of Highsmith, fans of Hitchcock, devotees of the macabre will, much like the ‘Ripliad’ himself, quickly eliminate inferior titles on their bookshelves to make room for this set. Containing The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley’s Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley and Ripley Under Water, this set will scratch that little bit of sociopathic itch in the one you love.
