Review:

"Rendell's psychological novels remain in a class of their own" Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph "Ruth Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She displays her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear" Sunday Times "The web is spun with fiendish skill" Observer "Domestic dramas exploding into deaths and murders - Threads are drawn tightly together in a lethal last pattern" Sunday Times "One of the greatest novelists presently at work in our language... A writer whose work should be read by anyone who either enjoys a brilliant mystery - or distinguished literature" Scott Turow

From the Back Cover:

Once when Benet was about fourteen she and her mother had been alone in a train carriage – and Mopsa had tried to stab her with a carving knife.

It was some time since Benet had seen her mad mother. So when Mopsa arrived at the airport looking drab and colourless in a dowdy grey suit, Benet tried not to hate her.

But then the tragic death of a child begins a chain of deception, kidnap and murder…
