London published FictionReview:
"Rendell's gift for characterisation illuminates every interview with a range of suspects and makes it a continuing pleasure to watch Wexford and Burden at work." ( Sunday Telegraph)
"Rendell's psychological insights are so absorbing, it's easy to forget what a superb plotter she is" ( The Times)
"No contemporary writer of suspense stories tries to vary the form's boundaries more than Ruth Rendell" ( Guardian)
" End in Tears proved once again that no British novelist knows the heart's hungers like Ruth Rendell" ( Christopher Bray, New Statesman)
"Ruth Rendell is a phenomenon. [She] has always had a deep insight into the criminal mind and the vicious selfishness of those who believe that their own desires override everything else. She uses it to good effect in End in Tears." ( The Times)
