Ten months later, Wexford is confronted with a murder scene of horrific brutality. At first the bloodbath at Tancred House looks like the desperate work of a burglar panicked into murder. The sole survivor of the massacre, 17-year-old Daisy Flory, remembers the events imperfectly, and her confused account of the fatal night seems to confirm this theory.

About Ruth Rendell

Ruth Barbara Rendell, Baroness Rendell of Babergh, CBE, who also writes under the pseudonym Barbara Vine, is an acclaimed English crime writer, known for her many psychological thrillers and murder mysteries. William Henry Mettam Bailey (also known as Robin Bailey) was an English actor. Although often chosen for upper class and tradition-bound roles such as Mr Justice Graves in Thames Television's Rumpole of the Bailey, Bailey is perhaps most fondly remembered for his portrayal of Uncle Mort in I Didn't Know You Cared, the BBC's adaptation of Peter Tinniswood's stories about an extended Yorkshire family. Bailey also recorded several audiobooks by Agatha Christie, Catherine Aird, Nevil Shute and Ruth Rendell.
