Review quote

'One of the best novelists writing today.' -- P.D. James 'The most brilliant mystery novelist of our time.' -- Patricia Cornwell 'Probably the greatest living crime writer in the world.' -- Ian Rankin, bestselling author of Knots And Crosses '[Wexford] has become an old friend who gets better with age.' -- The Herald '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.' -- The Sunday Times

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.
