    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: It's not that bad!, April 1, 2003 Reviewer: vortex87 from Picnic Point, NSW, Australia I have read few good reviews for this book, but having read it now, I think very much otherwise. In my opinion, this is the second best in the series - because "The Talented Mr. Ripley" is the best, of course, but also because "Ripley Under Ground" had a few good moments and was otherwise rather flat (4th best to me), "Ripley's Game" had a more good moments, but still didn't reach great peaks of suspense (3rd best), and "The Boy who Followed Ripley" was really pointless, and the core concept had already been done, and a lot better, in "The Two Faces of January." But here, as soon as Tom grows suspicious of the Pritchards, the atmosphere goes very apprehensive. And, as the novel progresses, it turns to a tension - that sweet, magical "oh, don't get caught! Don't get caught!" tension - that only the first one really has. And it doesn't let go. This book is indeed one of the few "unputdownables" that nearly equals Highsmith's best. It's definitely worth it. Read on!
