A pitch-perfect psychological thriller, filled with razor-sharp dialogue.

1995, Patricia Highsmith, the queen of the thriller, now ageing and ailing, hides away in her study in the Swiss Alps, surrounded by her collection of books and antique weaponry. A polished young man turns up, sent by her New York publisher to persuade her to write one final instalment of her best-selling series featuring the master manipulator, Tom Ripley.

But as day breaks over the mountains, it becomes clear that the charming stranger is set on a far more sinister mission.

"A gripping psychological thriller. Creeps up on you and then has you on the edge of your seat" Sunday Telegraph
