I liked this more than the original because it was funny and kept me engrossed. As Tom Ripley's confidence, power, and wealth grow, he is forced to kill again. He will do anything to avoid getting caught and to hide his past crimes. He doesn't even seem daunted by other sociopaths who try to kill him. The exotic locations and bizzare people in the art scene worked well for the story. Major characters for the "Ripliad" are introduced here for the first time --the ending is very cool.
Oddly this is Ripley in a world that might have been imagined by Joe Orton. That's an impression that I cannot shake. Corpses in the basement; corpses in the ground. There's a way about this one, as Ripley dashes about from the Continent to England and back again, all in the service of a fraud. They seek him here; they seek him there. Those policemen seek him everywhere. Will he trip up on his own badly disposed of bodies? Or end up like one himself?
