  • WHITE ON WHITE Working


Thriller. Tom Ripley's artist friend Derwatt dies in a car accident straight after his first hugely popular exhibition. Tom persuades his friends to keep the death a secret until the paintings sell. When the works are almost all sold, Tom persuades his other friend, Bernard, to continue to work in Derwatt's style so they can sell to make lots of money. Things go well until an American dealer called Murchison believes that he has a fake Derwatt, and wants to meet the artist.
