[tiny bit of wear to bottom right corner of front cover, otherwise a tight clean copy that appears unread]. (Vintage Crime / Black Lizard) Series Trade PB "In this quietly terrifying exploration of trust and friendship, a troubled young runaway arrives in Villeperce. And when, on the boy's behalf, Tom Ripley is drawn from his lovely estate in the French countryside to Berlin's seamy underworld and into a kidnapping plot that rerquires the most bizarre methods -- and sinister acumen -- for intervention, the icily amoral Ripley is transformed into a generous and compassionate protector. With this psychologically intricate and hauntingly perverse mastework, Patricia Highsmith warps all notions of friendship, gender, and morality as she explores the relationship of a young man with a guilty conscience and an older one who has no conscience at all."
