Review:

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

'The most brilliant mystery novelist of our time.' (Patricia Cornwell)

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

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

'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.' (The Sunday Times)

'Intelligent, well-written, and with a surprising twist at the end.' (The Times Literary Supplement)
