The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith

Tom Ripley is a charming psychopath and con man who wants money, success and the good life and he's willing to kill to achieve these. The tension throughout the novel is electric - this is a classic psychological thriller, sinister yet cajoling, swathed in Highsmith's macabre wit.
Patricia Highsmith was born in Fort Worth, Texas.
