This review is from: One Across, Two Down (Kindle Edition)
I'm a great fan of the Rendell/Vine non Wexford books and started reading them about 25 years ago. I wanted to go back and read what I had missed before this time and this proved difficult as some of her books have naturally dated. This one, however is a classic where the story unfolds within a suburban North London house in 1971 and deals with the happenings within. It's the story of conniving Stanley, hated by his live-in mother in law Maud as she perceives him to be a no good layabout and Stanley's plans for her demise so he can inherit her fortune.

The wonderful thing about RR's characters are that they are so clearly defined that they take shape and form straight away, mainly through conversation and subtle mannerisms and there are never any sharp personality changes which seem to exist so often in modern writing. I love normal situations that turn into something more and this most certainly delivers. A blast from the past. Excellent.
