4.0 out of 5 stars Rendell back on form, 25 July 2005
This review is from: Thirteen Steps Down (Paperback)
As with many readers, I've been somewhat put off by some recent Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine novels. However this was a real return to form. There are some people in the book that can be recognised from previous novels (such as a male obsessed with a beautiful woman...A Sight for Sore Eyes), but Rendell's ability to get you inside the mind of both a criminal and victim is not bettered by anyone.
The added obsession with a previous murderer (Christie, as in 10 Rillington Place) was also a good line.
The only criticism if I can, is that some of the events seemed a bit too far-fetched (Gwendolin reading of the Doctor's wife's death by chance; the immigrant from Iraq); but hey, who am I to criticise?
