The Complete Mr. Ripley

BBC Radio 4 brings all Patricia Highsmith's Ripley novels together in a series of five full cast audio dramas.

Written over 35 years Patricia Highsmith kept being drawn back to her hedonistic, charming, cultured and mischievous anti-hero who has a taste for the finer things in life.

Tom Ripley detests murder unless it's absolutely necessary. He prefers to persuade someone else to do his dirty work. But if he's called upon to act, there's no-one more cool, calculating or clever. Always on the edge of being discovered, Ripley appeals to the amoral instinct in all of us. These are unique and complex crime stories with a brilliantly twisted centre.

Ian Hart stars as Tom Ripley. A BAFTA Award winning actor, Ian Hart has starred in projects as varied as Land and Freedom, The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Cock and Bull Story, Blind Flight and Harry Potter.
