Product Description

About the Author

Ruth Rendell was an exceptional crime writer, and will be remembered as a legend in her own lifetime. Her groundbreaking debut novel, From Doon With Death, was first published in 1964 and introduced the reader to her enduring and popular detective, Inspector Reginald Wexford, who went on to feature in twenty-four of her subsequent novels.

With worldwide sales of approximately 20 million copies, Rendell was a regular Sunday Times bestseller. Her sixty bestselling novels include police procedurals, some of which have been successfully adapted for TV, stand-alone psychological mysteries, and a third strand of crime novels under the pseudonym Barbara Vine. Very much abreast of her times, the Wexford books in particular often engaged with social or political issues close to her heart.

Rendell won numerous awards, including the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger for 1976’s best crime novel with A Demon in My View, a Gold Dagger award for Live Flesh in 1986, and the Sunday Times Literary Award in 1990. In 2013 she was awarded the Crime Writers’ Association Cartier Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence in crime writing. In 1996 she was awarded the CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer.

Ruth Rendell died in May 2015. Her final novel, Dark Corners, is scheduled for publication in October 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a clever, totally engrossing story involving Luke and his two young daughters Elvira and Spinny. To reveal any more would risk spoiling what is almost guaranteed to be a breath-taking ride. I have never been a great Ruth Rendell enthusiast, but this is a real gem. Not a word is wasted as the tension is wound tighter and tighter. Enjoy.

Format: Hardcover
I've read many of Ruth Rendell's novels and short stories and this is one of my favorites. The narrator is a disturbed teenage girl with a difficult father, it's very compelling and a quick read. I think it's one of the scariest stories I've read; the ending is terrifying.

This book shows the inner hatred and fear that lurks in us all. With the twist at the end the reader will never be able to forget this book. It is one that every lover of thrillers or mysteries should read and reccomend

Format: Paperback
This book is terrifying. There's the elements of a great gothic: ghosts, liminality, insanity and love. You will catch yourself looking at your siblings in a new light. The audio version of this is incredible as the actress who reads the text sounds exactly like the protagonist would in your mind. This is a quick read - it kept me entertained for two sessions at the gym and is probably one of Ruth Rendall's best - on a par with her Barbara Vane book Dark Adapted Eye.

I purchase the audio cd, great reader and story. I listen to it repeatedly, which is something I won't do unless the tale has something special.
