It's a shame that there are only 5 Ripley novels,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Boy Who Followed Ripley (Paperback)
Ripley is a highly compelling character, he is like Hannibal Lectar minus the eating people and glib look at me I'm so super intelligent pretentious comments...
If anything Ripley is more intelligent...not matter how close he comes he never gets caught.
Of the Ripliad 5 this novel offers the most interesting insight into the character. It's not always about the plot; one would hope that Highsmith and her readers are not so one dimensional as to expect it to be so.
