“Easily outshines most of the competition on either side of the Atlantic.”
“An undoubted tour de force likely to offer enjoyment both to readers with long memories and to those approaching it as a stand-alone.”
—Kirkus ReviewsPraise for Ruth Rendell:
"Ruth Rendell is, unequivocally, the most brilliant mystery novelist of our time. Her stories are a lesson in human nature as capable of the most exotic love as it is of the cruelest murder."
