Inhaltsangabe: This collection of long and short stories probes the patterns of everyday life to pinpoint the frailties, the desires of deception, and the guilty secrets of human beings. It ends with "The Strawberry Tree", a novella-length tale of lost innocence set on the island of Majorca.
"The words dropped, very precisely, like pebbles into a pool. They spread ripples of menace and foreboding . . . Ruth Rendell hasd the extraordinary faculty of summing up life in a single phraseor sentence . . . A mesmeric collection" ( Daily Telegraph)
"Disturbing, atmospheric, inventive and surprising . . . Rendell's capacity to enter the souls of the emotionally bruised is a marvel" ( The Times)
"Rendell's consistent talent for creating plot, combined with her uncanny grasp of contemporary experience, makes this a winning volume" ( Mail on Sunday)
"Wonderful at exploring the dark corners of the human mind, and the way private fantasies can clash and explode into terrifying violence" ( Daily Mail)
"Chief Inspector Wexford is Rendell?s most enduring and best creation" ( Daily Telegraph)
