Review quote

'No contemporary writer of suspense stories tries to vary the form's boundaries more than Ruth Rendell.' -- The Guardian 'The Wexford books clearly display Rendell's great mastery of storytelling at its best.' -- The Sunday Telegraph 'More lifelike than many sophisticated thrillers.' -- The Sunday Times 'It is hard to think of another crime writer who so effortlessly incorporates real events ... into genre fiction, and in a serious manner ... Rendell's detective fiction stands almost alone as a chronicle of the dark side of modern life ... Rendell offers sufficient clues and red herrings to satisfy the most dedicated puzzle-solver ... Harm Done is a vivid demonstration of Rendell's contribution to contemporary fiction.' -- The Independent
