'Ruth Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She deploys her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent, murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear' Anthony Clare, Sunday Times 'Her most brilliant Wexford mystery to date... The plot is complicated and elaborately detailed but, as usual, there is not one superfluous word... stunning imagery' Kate Saunders, Cosmopolitan 'Beyond praise, completely compelling - will delight all Wexford's admirers' Allan Massie, The Scotsman 'Impressive and courageous... Rendell's psychological and social insights are so absorbing, it's easy to forget what a superb plotter she is. As a mystery, Simisola is exceptional... pace, surprise, tension and a climax of stunning unexpectedness' The Times 'Not only the finest crime novelist, but one of the finest novelists writing in the English language' Scotsman 'The book could hardly be more readable... A brilliant evocation of place, character and mood' Evening Standard 'With immaculate control, Ruth Rendell builds a menacing crescendo of tension and horror that keeps you guessing right up to the brilliantly paced finale' Good Housekeeping 'Rendell is the absolute mistress of plot' Mail on Sunday --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As always Lesley doesn't fail to bring her books to life, her attention to detail regarding the time period she writes is incredible. You could almost smell the grease of the little back street cafe, the smell of smoke and the noise in the packed out clubs. You could also get an impression of what London looked and sounded like in the mid to late 60's and 70's.
I felt there was unfinished business with some of the characters, for example Raymond and the inheritance that was left by his mother. What happened to Edward, these are things I would have liked to know...but, I don't think there is enough to make a follow up book to answers these and other questions.
It was a decent read, but its one I could put down and not read again, which is unusual for me and any Lesley Pearse book.
