Library Journal Review

Not many mysteries feature a murderer as a protagonist, but Highsmith's popular series featuring the cultivated psychopath Tom Ripley (e.g., The Talented Mr. Ripley, Audio Reviews, LJ 4/1/91) is an exception. In this sortie, Ripley is quietly enjoying his lovely home in the French countryside when it appears his past may be catching up with him. He receives a phone call ostensibly from someone he knows he murdered; and then there are those creepy new neighbors who have ties to some of Ripley's enemies. Well written and charming, this unabridged audiobook is likely to please public library patrons. One caveat: since this is a British production, narrator Geoffrey Matthews must spend much time affecting American accents for Ripley and his nemesis, which may turn off some listeners.-Reilly Reagan, Putnam Cty.
