Summary
"Tom Ripley is an American sociopath who sells forged paintings in Germany. Jonathan Zimmermann is an idealistic art restorer dying from a rare blood disease. But when Ripley arranges for the desperate family man to carry out a high-paying mob hit, the two forge an uneasy bond steeped in deceit, corruption and cold-bloded murder"--Container
