9780091796785: Collected Stories:

Three classic Ruth Rendell stories: Means of Evil, The Fallen Curtain and The Fever Tree.

Ruth Rendell is unequalled in her ability to weave stories that challenge our preconceptions and prejudices. From Wexford and Burden's investigation of a wife's apparent suicide, with all the evidence pointing to the husband in Means of Evil to the unsettling psychology behind a man's friendship with a boy in The Fallen Curtain and the paranoia that plagues two people who no longer know how to trust, in The Fever Tree.

Review:

"Rendell understands the nature of evil... Her gimlet intelligence eschews compassion; reading this collection is similar to being harangued by one of her unstable creations who behind your back, sharpens the knitting needle." ( The Guardian)

"Each [story] is like a condensed, polished Rendell novel." ( Daily Telegraph)

"Rendell's mastery of the short story is unsurpassed." ( The Times)

"Ruth Rendell, like all the great creators of crime fiction, keeps her pact with the reader. There’s a murder mystery, there are clues, there is a solution. It’s a very satisfying read" ( Giles Brandreth)

"Here are the fears that haunt us, the nightmarish urban myths of our time... One of the most remarkable talents writing today" ( Jane Jakeman, Independent)

Book Description:

A collection of three classic short story thrillers, including an appearance by crime fiction's famous detective, DCI Reg Wexford, written by the world's greatest living mystery writer. Ruth Rendell is also the author of psychological thriller novels, including Thirteen Steps Down and Tigerlily's Orchids.
