HASH(0xa3e1f4ec) out of 5 stars A deception July 28 2006
By Jacyr Pasternak - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ruth Rendell is one of the First Ladies of Misteries but this book of short tales falls short of possible expectations from such a star; small stories, some obvious, and looks like she wrote mementoes in her pocket book to write novels with those subjects, but never maneged to do them. OK, not so good tales from Ruth Rendell are better than some misteries from other writers, but there is no comparison between this book and her others, writing either as Ruth Rendell or Barbara Vine

HASH(0xa40d7aac) out of 5 stars Set your teeth on edge March 4 2014
By Peter R. Wigley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These stories are typical of Rendell,well crafted, a wide range of subjects,In particularly I liked "The vinegar mother" and the story about the woman who keeps a "Venus fly trap" and feeds it with pieces of meat. As in all of these stories things end badly except for the story about the man who invites a small boy into his car and relives an adventure he had when he was a small boy.

HASH(0xa42d7234) out of 5 stars Slow-burning, quick-reading mysteries Dec 26 2015
By Adan Ramie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading The Fallen Curtain, I put a few more of Rendell's books on my TBR List. I can see how she ended up winning an Edgar Award with these meticulously planned stories. The build-up is like waiting for footfalls on the stairs in the middle of the night. When the inevitable eeriness finally hits, it's like a serum on frazzled nerves.

Four out of four stars! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys quick-reading mysteries.

Tremendously exciting book. A pageturner that will leave you breathless as you get to the end. Ruth Rendell is a class act. Brava!

I never miss a book from R.R. She never disappoints. She remains the best in psychological suspense that we have.
