Ripley Under Ground by Patricia Highsmith

This is a disappointing sequel to the Talented Mr. Ripley, quite unlike the movie plot and more humdrum too. Tom Ripley has married and is living the life of a country squire in France. There is no longer a reason for him to engage in heinous activities, but he does anyway! The author doesn't tell us why; she is too interested in the gruesome details of his latest cover-up.
