A mother and a daughter live quietly in the rustic gatehouse of Shrove House, an isolated British estate. Their life seems perfectly ordinary except that daughter Liza has been kept isolated from the outside world for all of her sixteen years. And that he has seen her beautiful mother commit murder... more than once. Now, as the police come searching for a missing man, Liza's sheltered, strange world begins to fall apart. Piece by piece she will reveal her mother's tale of betrayal, desire, and obsession. Step-by-step we discover how much like mother, like daughter she is.

From AudioFile:

Ruth Rendell's latest psychological thriller presents a terrifying look into the relationship of a serial killer and her daughter. There is no "who done it" about this novel, you know right away who did it. As in many of Rendell's novels, the real question is why? Although the narration is very good and the characters voices distinguishable, too much is lost in the abridgment. The plot is clear, but little of the feeling and the mood remain. It is for these features that Rendell is often referred to as "the greatest mystery writer in the English-speaking world." Some texts cannot be cut, however expertly, without losing some essential core. E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
