"One of the best novelists writing today" (P.D. James)

"Probably the greatest living crime writer in the world" (Ian Rankin)

"[Wexford] has become an old friend who gets better with age" ( Herald)

Perfect for both collectors and new fans of the award-winning crime novelist Ruth Rendell, the author of classic detective fiction and gripping psychological thrillers, including End in Tears and Thirteen Steps Down.
