Shouldn't this have been a Barbara Vine rather than a Ruth Rendell ? It is more like a traditional BV.
Whatever ... I have gotten back into Ruth Rendell recently after a long hiatus and, Goodness me! this was good. Masterful plotting. Never a dull page. Fabulous characterisations.
I will now be searching out more that I haven't read and, maybe, revisiting ones that I did, many years ago.
