Book reviews - The Talented Nr
The Talented Nr
Author: Patricia Highsmith
Ian Hart stars in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation, as Patricia Highsmith's infamous Ripley.
Tom Ripley detests murder unless it is absolutely necessary. He prefers someone else to do the dirty work. But if he's called on to act there is no one more cool, calculating and clever.
In his first adventure, The Talented Mr Ripley, Tom makes a bid for another man's inheritance and succeeds, but has he really got away with it?
Tense, thrilling and atmospheric, the first of five dramatisations that are perfect evocations of Highsmith's unique, complex and brilliantly twisted crime novels.
