Review:

"One of the best novelists writing today" * P.D. James * "Ruth 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" * Sunday Times * "Rendell never fails to come up trumps, and her millions of admirers will eagerly consume this offering as they have all the others." * The Irish Times * "A firm grasp of social concerns ensure that her novels are reflective of our own times, as well as hugely absorbing." -- Louise Welsh * The Times * "This is Rendell on cracking form, with the entire accoutrements one expects from her." * The Good Book Guide *
