(From the publisher):
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 requires the most bizarre methods—and sinister acumen—for intervention, the icily amoral Ripley is transformed into a generous and compassionate projector.
