Fab. Having been rather disappointed by recent Rendell/Vine offerings (and dismayed by amazon readers' reviews of them), it was wonderful to go back to some of Rendell's earlier stuff. This is Rendell at her classic best. A pacey psychological thriller set in sharp relief against the suburban domesticity of North London. Believeable characters, incisive observation and a satisfyingly unexpected twist at the end. Oh Ruth, why can't you write them like this any more?! Stick with the formula - it's what you've always been best at.
