The Complete "Ripley" Radio Mysteries

Description: Ian Hart stars in these BBC Radio 4 dramatisations of Patricia Highsmith's five "Ripley" novels. Tom Ripley detests murder unless it is absolutely necessary. He prefers someone else to do the dirty work. But if he's called on to act there is no one more cool, calculating and clever. In these dramatisations, BBC Radio 4 brings all Patricia Highsmith's "Ripley" novels together in one thrilling series. In "The Talented Mr Ripley", Tom makes a bid for another man's inheritance and succeeds, but has he really got away with it? "Ripley Under Ground" is set a few years later, when Tom is living in luxury in a French chateau with his beautiful wife Heloise - but the clever art forgery which funds Tom's expensive tastes is about to be uncovered. In "Ripley's Game", Tom sets up a man he dislikes to carry out two perfect murders, while in "The Boy Who Followed Ripley", a rich young stalker arrives at Belle Ombre and he and Tom end up fighting for their lives. Finally, in "Ripley Under Water", strange new neighbours show an overdeveloped interest in Ripley's past. Will Tom's shady dealings be exposed? Tense, thrilling and atmospheric, these dramatisations are perfect evocations of Highsmith's unique, complex and brilliantly twisted crime novels.

The Ripley stories get the BBC treatment. Each book has been abridged in a very effective way. All the characters are acted. Ian Hart is Mr Ripley and I can no longer picture anyone else in the role. The acting is superb and the directing and bridging is spot on. The subtle and sometimes haunting music along with the ambient sound effects are excellent: it is like watching a film but without the picture. The box set come on 5 CD audio discs containing the plays as originally broadcast.

All 5 novels have been shortened to about 56 minutes each, recorded in full stereo:
1. The Talented Mr Ripley: Tom makes a bid for another man's inheritance and suceeds, but has he really got away with it? This is the slowest paced of the plays.
2. Ripley Under Ground: Tom is living in luxury in France with his wife Heloise - but the clever art forgery which funds Tom's expensive tastes is about to be uncovered. This was the first one I heard.
3. Ripley's Game: Tom sets up a man he dislikes to carry out two perfect murders.
4. The Boy Who Followed Ripley: A rich young stalker arrives at Belle Ombre and he and Tom end up fighting for their lives.
5. Ripley Under Water: Strange new neighbours show an overdeveloped interest in Ripley's past. Will Tom's shady past dealings be exposed?
