Product Description:

A collection of Ruth Rendell mysteries. A wife plots her husband's psychological destruction - then his murder; a son is ruined by his mother's obsession; a man marries the woman he rescues from suicide, only to become the victim of her obsessiveness; and a family feud brings unimaginable horror.

Review:

"She can make a scene between two women sitting in a café as violent as anything you’ve seen between a couple of guys with baseball bats" ( Mark Billingham)

"Wonderful at exploring the dark corners of the human mind, and the way private fantasies can clash and explode into terrifying violence" ( Daily Mail)

"Ruth Rendell gets into the mind not only of the hero but into the mind of the villain" ( Jeffery Deaver)

"Rendell’s eerier capacity to comprehend disturbed criminal minds continues to astonish" ( The Times)

"Once her characters start twisting on every-tightening tracks, their fates are brilliantly sealed, and it’s never obvouis who’ll be the victim or the culprit. Rendell’s greatest trick is making an unforeseen outcome feel predestined" ( Financial Times)
