Ripley's Game, Paperback Book
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Tom Ripley detested murder. Unless it was absolutely necessary. Wherever possible, he preferred someone else to do the dirty work.

In this case someone with no criminal record, who would commit 'two simple murders' for a very generous fee.

Review by

This was the most different of all the Ripely books. Ripely himself came off as the 'good' guy. Helping to kill some mafiosas (mafia) so that another man can collect the money. His morals are really developed here--killing mafia men for him is almost a public service. As well as helping his new friend Jonathan. <br/><br/>There wasn't as much drama or connection to his wife and almost no interaction with the police which the first two books had.
