9780140252804: The Brimstone Wedding

The Brimstone Wedding - a masterful mystery about love and madness by bestseller Barbara Vine

'Intriguing, absorbing and compelling' Spectator

Jenny's marriage is loveless, and she is having an affair. She works at an old people's home, where she is especially fond of Stella, a gracious, dignified woman dying of cancer - whose own secrets parallel Jenny's - with the difference that she may have been involved in murdering her lover's husband . . .

Both a finely crafted mystery and a disturbingly honest depiction of the kinship between love and madness, The Brimstone Wedding tells an unsettling story about the power and the poison of love. If you enjoy the crime novels of P.D. James, Ian Rankin and Scott Turow, you will adore this book.

'The Rendell/ Vine partnership has for years been producing consistently better work than most Booker winners put together' Ian Rankin
